Our chook house is everything we hoped for, very well built and carefully thought through. Thanks so much

Mobile Wheelbarrow Timber Hen House - flast new home to bantam clan

Our five bantams have readily adapted to their flash new Wheelbarrow Hen House. By placing the most docile bantam, a Chinese Silkie, in the coop first, it piqued the curiosity of the other bantams who made their way up the ramp to inspect their new home, giving it the thumbs-up. Even on the very hottest Canterbury day, the solid wooden roof provided welcome protection from the heat of the sun, with the house remaining cool inside. The perches are perfect for the little bantam feet and the choice of two perches helps overcome any pecking order squabbles. Pompom., the Chinese Silkie and her bantam mates (two Australorp bantams, an Old English Game Fowl and a Wyandotte) have rated it 10 out of 10!

Wheelbarrow chicken home.

I'm super happy with my new chicken tractor. Excellent craftsmanship, easy to move around and looks great. A perfect home for our feathery friends. Highly recommended.

Wheelbarrow hen house

I love my hen house don’t have any hens yet so have no idea how they will feel. But it does what I was after and that was being able to be shifted by Me without enlisting the help of others.
