Costco Chicken Coops. It was only a matter of time.





I prefer my egg containers to look like this.  

But sometimes great eggs come in containers like this.




I suppose it was only a matter of time until Costco carried chicken coops. 

Backyard chickens are the next big thing here in #affluentWestNashville, and I'm sure they're all over East Nashville (where the hip live). I have even heard that backyard chickens are a thing in Brentwood, our local McMansion suburb, so perhaps the Costco out there has coops as well.



I gave up trying to figure out how long it would take me to save money if I farmed my own eggs, but at $179.99 for this Pro Concept Hen House coop, plus the cost of chickens, plus feed, a long time. Besides I've been there done that and the great problem was what do you do with the poor things when they stop laying?

  1. What do you do with the hens when they stop laying? Make some fried chicken, of course!

    1. I tried chicken stew, but I have a hard time eating something I knew. (By the time ours stopped laying, they were too tough for fried.)

  2. I saw these at our Costco in Tucson, AZ this week! I think they are going to be popular, I saw three in other people's shopping carts as I was going about my shopping.
