Almost Done the New Chicken House!

Because we don’t have a lot of land, I rent various nearby fields so my creatures can graze and forage. This means I rely on having portable pens and shelters to keep everyone safe at night no matter where they happen to be camping.

This new chicken coop is pretty fancy! Built on a chassis we bought on sale, it can be moved by one person on level ground or hauled around by my riding mower when the terrain is a bit trickier or the distance longer. Recently, we’ve had some problems with egg eating hens, so the nesting boxes in this coop have sloped floors that lead to a covered collection trough. Dad has been busy, busy, busy working on this creation which should be ready for new residents very soon!
