We installed in a large chook house, for bantam chooks - initially having at a higher position so no chance would hit any heads if swung, but - when that go no interest - moving to a low position not far above ground. We have seen some signs of use (dirt on perch) but never actually seen the chooks use it in a few weeks of checking at least once a day, so couldn't say a great sucess for us. Wishing had just got a perch rather than a swing as think would have been used more. Reviews are generally very good on this however and it was easy to install and well made - so still 3 stars
Chickens are yet to swing on it but we probably need to put it in a better location. it looks cute.
Good things take time they say.. I am sure once they trust it they will love it lol. I mean I'd swing on it for sure! The swing itself is excellent quality as is every other product I have purchased from this company 👍
I have a bunch of partridge silkie teenagers.They were introduced to the chicken swing as babies and love it, it is in constant use by 3 or 4 at a time. It amazes me just how far they move it.Looking forward to our new cube arriving, Regards Margaret
The chickens love this swing and it's a delight to see them swinging on it. Very cool.
Following its huge success in the USA and the UK, The Chicken Swing is here in NZ, and it's ready to bring fun to all our feathered friends. Chicken toys don't get any better than this! Suitable for use in any chicken run, The Chicken Swing is the ultimate toy for chickens.
All chicken keepers know that birds love to perch and they will hop on to anything they can lay their feet on to give them a good view of the world. The Chicken Swing is a great perch idea because it provides more than just a place to sit - it actually swings! The patented design allows chickens to pump the swing themselves, with no need for a friendly push from the owner. Shaped like a mailbox, with a corn-like texture for grip, the Chicken Swing allows chickens of all types and ages to torque the perch. Quite simply, your hens will be swinging themselves silly in no time.
Ideal for hanging in any chicken coop, enclosure or chicken run, The Chicken Swing is a great hen toy that will reduce boredom and keep your pets hentertained. They'll love being able to hop up as they please, stretch their wings and swing back and forth above their pals. Synchronised swinging is also very much acceptable, should your chickens decide to share their new toy.
Made from safe quality parts that are built to last, The Chicken Swing is suitable for poultry of all ages and breeds. Although it is best to introduce chickens to the swing when they are young, adults will soon get the hang of it too. Attach The Chicken Swing so it hangs close to the ground, and as your chicks or chickens get used to climbing on, increase the height. Eventually, you will want it hanging high enough so as not to be an obstacle to any hens on the ground.
The Chicken Swing is a fantastic accessory for every chicken keeping area, and you are sure to henjoy watching your pets in action as much as they enjoy using it. Perch measures 16.25" in length.
