Silver Spoon Sunday: Hen House Heaven
It is that time of year again when Neiman Marcus releases their Christmas catalogue with their tremendous fantasy gifts. For this season one of the fabulous gifts is a spectacular chicken coop designed with Marie Antoinette's Versailles. Le Petit Trianon is the most posh hen house ever dreamed up.
While the outside is a beautiful piece of architecture to add to your landscape, the interior is also elegantly appointed with a chandelier. The dwelling is multilevel and includes a nesting area, broody area, a "living room," and a library with books. The two trays for growing herbs or vegetables are included in the overall package.
The package also includes a farm consultation and a survey of the grounds to start things off. Then two additional visits from Svetlana Simon to make sure that you are completely trained in its use and in the care and management of the heritage chickens she selects just for you. Heritage chickens produce fewer eggs than commercial chickens, but they are of higher quality.
For every one of these beautiful Heritage Hen Farm chicken coops purchased, Neiman Marcus will donate $3,000 to The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. This organization works to protect genetic diversity through the promotion and conservation of endangered breeds.
To purchase your own Le Petit Trianon you will need (hold on to your checkbook) $100,000. Delivery is not included in the price, so plan on it costing more than that. For more information or a chance to dream, click here.
