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 its 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.
For those with limited space or perhaps just setting out in this new venture there are plans to house only one or two birds but there are plans covering numerous birds up to small-scale commercial rearing. So if you are serious about raising chickens for whatever purpose including breeding for show or meat and eggs and even as pets you need to decide how many birds you have space for and how many you can afford in terms of time and effort. Although most small coops can be constructed in a day the larger coops will take several days to build something to think about when you do your planning. Safety and security are important considerations for your birds and not something that is immediately obvious until you look at plans in detail.
This is the best option if you are just beginning to start raising chicken. Most of the time breeders start with a small number of chickens and eventually it grows from there. Most of the time they would want to test the water first before embarking into it for good. A portable coop is a good option because you can easily remove it if you dont want to continue raising chickens. It is also quite easy to build and will not cost much. There are design plans included in the set. You can also find designs in the Internet for a more customized coop for your chickens. Portable coops do not require too much space and they are light enough to be transferred from one place to another. The owner can move it to a higher place if he wants to protect his chickens from wet grounds or even put it out on the ground if he wants the chickens to catch a bit of sunlight.
