So… you finally decided to try raising your own chickens? Outstanding! By now, I imagine that you already bought yourself a lovely batch of baby chickens. You excitedly brought them home and have been having a bundle of fun with them. But, they are getting bigger and need more space. They cannot stay indoors forever.
It is time to setup a chicken coop in your backyard. The problem is that you have such a beautiful, landscaped backyard that you spent so much time, effort, and money on. You don’t want to dare tarnish the exquisiteness of your backyard with a nasty, dingy chicken coop lodged into the ground. However, your chickens have become too big to keep staying inside your home. You certainly do not want to sell them away to another family. So what are you to do? I present to you the ‘Chicken Coop on Wheels’, also known as a moveable chicken coop.
A chicken coop on wheels is essentially a coop that has been built on wheels so that it can be moved. Think how hard it would be to move a regular chicken coop. They are heavy, dirty, and full of chickens. With a coop on wheels, you can roll your coop to any destination in your yard. Plus, it will not destroy the landscape beneath it. Just find a quaint corner in your backward, and roll it over there.
During winter, you can roll your coop by your porch to allow for easier access for feeding/cleaning. When Spring comes, you can roll your coop back into some remote corner of your backyard. Or suppose a hurricane or tornado is about to hit your town. All you have to do is roll the coop onto a truck and drive away. These are just a few benefits of having a moveable chicken coop.
A moveable chicken coop can be as big as you desire. Typically though, you want it to be small enough so that it can fit into the back of a truck. This will allow for easy transportation in case circumstances arise. Also remember that a moveable chicken coop cannot be purchased. You will have to manually install wheels onto your coop. Considering this, it may be best to just build your own coop from scratch since you are already going to have to engage in manual labor.
