Nov. 9 (UPI) -- A couple of Idaho "nerds" who needed a larger coop for their growing flock of chickens built an elaborate structure in the shape of a flying saucer.
The Boise couple said they recently expanded their small flock of chickens and knew they needed a larger coop than the one they had, so they decided to design something special.
"When we expanded our flock this Summer. We knew a larger coop would be necessary. As an artistic couple, I knew it couldn't be just any coop. As UFO nerds, we had the perfect plan!" the couple wrote.
A video recorded by the residents shows the chickens lining up in single-file to board their starship, which features tiny windows and blinking lights.
