Tuff City Chicks

    Our humans apparently spent a few weekends based on a plan in their head. We know they had the benefit of some old trusses from a mobile home they had just demolished, which keeps the rain off us quite nicely. The wheels have an old Toyota jack attached so they can jack up one end to move it around and take us to fresh ground. We think they did quite a good job constructing our house.What we would change: It would be nicer if our humans could make it lighter to wheel about, we do especially like the window so we can look out on a rainy day. We are afraid to ask what this cost in materials and time, but we’re worth it!

    Wow eh. That's gota be the most awesome chicken tractor coop
    Since I work at a landfill site/recycling depot I really appreciate the re-use/re-purpose of materials.
    Thank you for posting and congrats to your humans for being chosen to have your mobile home featured.
