Mobile Chicken Coop pt 1

This is a two part series on a  mobile chicken coop that was built from a man who has a business building these.   You ought to see his green house’s too!

Part 1 is the coop  (this post) while Part 2  will tell about the builder.

You got to have one, that’s all there is to it!

Wow, What a neat mobile chicken coop this is!

The Builder can make one just for you.

This is one durable chicken coop that is easy to maneuver because of the big tires and the rope to the left (that you can’t see).   The  outside pen chicken wire isn’t attached yet, so you don’t see their courtyard, but I will add a photo of it  when I get it attached to the coop.  I’m not in a big hurry since they’ll stay inside for a while being only 2 weeks old.  I’m building up an Andalusian flock with more coming.  This coop should fit 10 birds or 7 big ones comfortably.

See the feed box to the right?  I  can just pour in the feed for them and it goes to the built in trough inside.   Do you know he can ship them on a train?  You can have one of these  for your laying hens.    He builds them smaller too.  contact info  for prices and more info. on next post.

I was online trying to find a hen house… I found them in the UK, but not here in the USA.   Was very down and disappointed….  till I found this chicken coop builder…. you’ll meet him in part 2 and see inside photos of the coop.   Check in later this week.Another cat patrolling the chicks in the mobile coop.   It’s very secure and the cats can’t get in!

Here's the attached removable pen

Here's some pullets in the coop pen.

  4. Hello Mr. Belitz, just email Elmer at sageland@yahoo.com and he can tell you. He can build smaller ones, probably larger ones too.
