BROOKLYN, N.Y., Sept. 22 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A new home-farming trend sweeping North America is seeing chicken coops and small flocks of chickens appearing in suburban backyards. In support of this home-grown movement, Handcrafted Chicken Coops ( is offering affordable, portable chicken coops to backyard and urban chicken farmers.

Raising chickens is often considered a farmer's job, but a new trend sweeping North America has seen chicken coops and small flocks of chickens appearing in more common places. The backyard chicken farmer is now a common sight in urban and suburban settings.

Economists point to people taking their future and daily expenses into their own hands. But increases in the cost of food may only be a small factor. Nutritionists count higher levels of nutrients in home-raised eggs, free from chemicals and factory-farming conditions and suggest people no longer trust corporations to provide their daily food. Food safety concerns and the recent contamination of factory-farmed eggs has only strengthened an already growing trend towards home food production.

Designing chicken coops specifically for the backyard and urban farmer, Handcrafted Coops provides affordable and space efficient homes for backyard chickens. "Online interest and sales of our coop kits has increased exponentially in the past 12 months," says Drew Waters, the principal designer of Handcrafted Coops. "People are bringing their food production back home."
