Portable Chicken Run?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am thinking about building a portable chicken run but I was curious if anyone had any recommendations or advice about them. Thanks!

Our house has been upgraded to a farm-
2 big dogs, 2 cats, lots of feral cats, 2 canaries, 1 snake, lots of fish, and now 4 chickens: 2 Buffs and 2 Black Australorps
and any other living thing that takes refuge in our house

We were at Home Depot and they have these dog runs. They are chain link, have a door, and the dimensions are 10 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 6 feet tall. I was maybe thinking about turning that into a chicken run. Is that possible? Has anyone done that?

I think you could add wheels of some sort to it and move it around. Check out my website under the housing page and scroll down almost to the bottom for the way we put wheels on our tractors. I would think somehow the same concept could be used and improved.

Here's mine, it's only 10 lbs. can move by myself, and easy to build. More pics on my chicken page...
