Hold on to your egg shells, farm sisters, because you might just …
when you hear this:
Neiman Marcus has unveiled its 86th annual Fantasy Gifts collection, and, MERCY!
The selection this year had me sucking air in through my teeth, then exhaling it in a whistle.
Got your Christmas gift list handy?
Well, then, take a gander at this lil’ beauty:
Who would’ve thought?
Those high-falutin’ city slickers
(bless their bejeweled hearts)
are elevating the age-old practice of backyard chicken farming to fine art.
Let me reiterate:
The price tag on the Beau Coop, in case you missed that discreet detail, is a cool …
Granted, the Beau Coop is grand.
Who am I kidding?
It’s downright glam.
The farm-friendly folks out there in New York are wooing prospective poultry producers with a posh promo:
“Your custom-made multilevel dwelling features a nesting area, a ‘living room’ for nighttime roosting, a broody room, a library filled with chicken and gardening books for visitors of the human kind, and, of course, an elegant chandelier … You’ve always fancied yourself a farmer—now thanks to Heritage Hen Farm, you’re doing it in the fanciest way possible!”
What chicken doesn’t crave her own chandelier?
To be fair, though, the Beau Coop Heritage Hen Mini Farm is not all feathers, fluff, and filthy-rich frivolity.
Really, now—stop that giggling.
For every Heritage Hen Mini Farm purchase, Neiman Marcus will donate $3,000 to The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that protects genetic diversity through the conservation and promotion of endangered breeds.
I’m all for that.
Just one question:
Does the coop come with a housekeeper?
