I wish I could have one of these in my backyard

I sometimes wonder if I'm turning into a hippie? It's not that I'm all for free-love and psychotropics - it's more like I'm into trying to do things for myself, be more sustainable, get off the grid as much as a person living in a town like I do, can. I guess that would be my punk ethos then, yeah?

This fantastic contraption would go some of the way towards achieving that goal - don't you think?

What the hell is that you might ask? It's an Eglu, that's what!
As per Omlet, the UK company that designs and distributes this brilliance -

"We designed the eglu for the town garden, the first time chicken owner, the family and the eco-savvy individual. We wanted it to be as easy as looking after a goldfish but more rewarding than owning a dog (you get eggs with chickens!). Keeping a couple of chickens in your garden doesn't require a large investment of money or time, but you do get fantastic tasting eggs and a good feeling inside."

Alas, my very small backyard (I don't even think we have the required space) and lack of private area (due to our easement) prevents me from being able to have things like a chicken coop. Maybe when we move to Hawaii? Not maybe - definitely!

So mosey on over to Omlet UK and check them out!
