We're a little light on the details on this coop but we had to include it because it was so rustically beautiful. Located in Humbe in the Manica province of Mozambique, the coop is all natural and made using African bamboo. What it lacks in modern features it more than makes up for in environmental friendliness. I particularly love the large rock placed on top to keep the roof from flying away in the wind.
