So… you’ve decided to take on the fun filled hobby of backyard chicken raising?
I’m sure by now you’ve bought a batch of baby chickens from your local pet store or expo center and brought them into your home with joy and excitement. Everyday you’ve fed them and played with them and enjoyed just watching them chirp and make a mess of themselves. For weeks you’ve sat there and watched them grow, but now you’ve realized that they are just too big to have inside your house in those empty milk cartons or fish aquariums that you were using to keep them in. You’ve figured it is time to build a chicken coop and I couldn’t agree more.
The problem is…
You have a mesmerizingly, fully landscaped backyard in which you’ve poured in every last drop of sweat to grow and maintain and the last thing you want to do now is destroy your lawn by permanently building a chicken coop that will tarnish the aesthetics of your home and garden. At the same time, your small flock of chickens are growing and becoming way too large to keep indoors and since you’ve become quite attached to the little chicks by now, it would be much too painful to give them away. Well, the answer to your problems is quite simple…what you need is a Moveable Chicken Coop.
The Moveable Chicken Coop
Moveable chicken coops are like chicken coops on wheels. Literally. Though not so popular amongst the hardcore chicken breeders of the world which tend to build chicken coops of a large scale for hundreds of poultry and heavy egg layers, the moveable chicken coop was an invention my father created after a major storm, with hurricane like winds, hit our small town. After the storm knocked down some of our coconut trees and demolished most of our plants and livestock, my father needed to move the chicken coop to other parts of the yard in order to clean up the mess. Since it was an almost impossible task to actually lift up the coop with all its weight and relocate it elsewhere, my father came up with the genius idea of installing wheels to the bottom of the chicken coop so that it would be easily rolled to any destination in our yard. This idea was such a success in our everyday chicken raising lifestyle that from that moment on, every chicken coop we ever built was a moveable chicken coop.
Moveable Chicken Coop Perks
With moveable chicken coops, you will never have to worry about having a permanent structure in your backyard ever again. If you wish to keep your moveable chicken coop closer to your porch during the winter for easy access for feeding and cleaning, you can do so. If during the spring you would rather show off your beautiful sprouting garden to your friends and family without having your chicken coop in the way, tarnishing the beauty of your garden…no problem. Just simply roll your moveable chicken coop to another location in the yard where it’s most fitting. Even if a major hurricane threatens your area, with a moveable chicken coop, you will easily be able to roll it to a safer position such as your garage if you have the space, or even inside your barn if you live in a farm house.
Don’t go slapping a pair of wheels on your chicken coop and assume to crown champion at the next chicken coop drag race. An efficient moveable chicken coop is designed with utmost care and planning. Learn how you can construct a well crafted moveable chicken coop here:
