Purina is reinventing the chicken coop

How we're helping animals reach their full potential, regardless of circumstance

Purina is reinventing the chicken coop


When the team at Purina Animal Nutrition discovered how many millions of chickens and other livestock animals drown every year from natural disasters, they wanted to do something to help. They reinvented the way chickens are housed by designing chicken coops that float. Built on a dock and positioned with poles on the corners, the coops are made to rise and fall with floodwaters.

The first coops will be given away to deserving Purina customers who’ve lost dozens of personal chickens from flood waters resulting from Hurricanes. One step in an ongoing effort to help animals reach their fullest potential, regardless of circumstance.
