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.
Another important feature to look out for is a materials list telling you exactly how much you need of each and every component of the plans. With a decent materials list you should cut down on material waste and keep any potential overspending to a minimum. The final aspect of a good set of chicken coop plans is the tools list to complete the job. A good set of easy chicken coop plans will be an incredible help to the novice building their first coop so bear this in mind if this is you. There are a multitude of chicken coop plans available covering a broad range of chicken coop layouts from arks houses inside runs all the way up to small chicken barns for sizeable numbers of birds. The development of the internet has seen a huge increase in the resources available to all and this is true in the world of self-sufficiency too where the experienced can share their knowledge with novices.
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.
