Luxury Egg-laying

I saw this article in the New York Times today...

For a cool $3500 you can purchase your own "modernist, high-end" coop (and then assemble it of course). With its 3 levels - a "run" level, a nesting level and a roosting level - the coop was supposedly designed for "discriminating" poultry.

Ah, discriminating poultry. Does that mean they don't poop all over everything? I'd love to see a photo of this coop 6 months in...
