This (New) Home: Eglu

If you're dreaming of farm animals but you're lacking the farm, these enclosed homes are perfect for backyard egg layers! Your pet chicken won't feel cooped up in a classy eglu, and she'll have a detachable, fenced (fox-proof!) run for more strutting. Created by UK-based Omlet, there are two models – chickens and rabbits – offered stateside. Each chicken eglu ($515 including two birds and $495 without) includes a slide-out tray for cleaning, a roosting area, and a nesting box . . . if you're dreaming of omelets for real, you can run out to collect eggs from your own property and get started in the kitchen!

I'm happy to see a couple of these nice homes in the US and I'm hoping more will become available here soon. Last year, the company released that Eglu Cube (seen at the top left) and even offers useful Omlet courses run by an "eggsperienced egluowner" in England (ha!) to cover all the everyday skills required to look after your new feathered friend.

Boy did I mess my sentence up. :) I would never keep that type of animal. I guess this is a new / different idea to play around with when it comes to some people.

Factor in the smell of chicken poo! It's nasty. And I'm also terrified of birds, so this really isn't a good idea for me...

I love chickens! My pet chick won third place at my first grade pet show, haha. They are my favorite animal. I'm not allowed to have any here though... stupid city ordinances.

I have pet chickens and they are SO FUN! They have their own cute personalities and my husband and I love feeding them leftovers. They go crazy for rice. And, every day is like Easter. :) Fresh eggs taste so much better than any egg you can find at the store!
