I about dropped my teeth when I saw this. For that price I could just have someone stand around and watch the chicken.chicken coop with run

P.S. I didn't put this in the critters forum because I can't take this seriously as critter care education.

Yikes! Even if they sent enough day old chicks to populate it, it would still be outrageous.

P.S.: I didn't stay on the site long enough to figure out how much shipping would cost.

P.T Barnum was right: There's a sucker born every day.

Hey I was a sucker now I'm a born again cheapskate who's do it yourselfish about things.
When I was first starting out I almost spent 1200 dollars on one of those eggloo's from england. The only reason I didnt buy it is because I threw a hissy fit about how long I had to wait for shipping. I tend to go for things that make me feel like i'm going micro scale commercial, but I'm really just buying the smallest most expensive thing I can label as a solid investment. I almost bought a 500 dollar egg incubator this morning that only holds 9-18 duck eggs, I must have good karma because the guy talked me down from something so high tech it's mostly just for parrots to a hovabator that can take 42 eggs and cost 1/3rd the price.
Ok now that tractor in the link is an obvious piece of Offal, but feast your eyes on this badboy http://www.omlet.co.uk/shop/shop.php?cat=Eglu&sub=Eglu+Cube&product_id=460&product_name=Eglu+Cube+Chicken+House+-+Purple
you would think you could get one from ikea for 50bux.

Wow! That one has a 2 metre run! You could turn your lawn into a mud puddle in no time.

 
You can thank my dental hygienist for my untimely aliveness. So tiny:
