Our chickens are going on holiday! Our friends have offered to look after them while we are away and to save them having to run all over kingdom come looking after them we decided to take them to our friends. Problem is though that our friend's gate is less than 3ft wide and not terribly tall (it is metal and has a bar above it). So I came up with this design that should (haven't tried yet!) fit in DHs truck bed (less than 5' wide and about 7' long). My whole family has been working on it to get it ready and we are nearly done! Please excuse our very very messy yard, we are not tidy people and have been building coops for the last three months! DH fitting the wire to the hoops with pipe clamps It is lightweight and very sturdy. I was able to lift it by myself (awkwardly, I don't recommend it) and we are going to fit removable wheels with the left over emt pipe. The big plywood door is removable with hinges that have had the pins replaced with cotter pins so it makes the coop even lighter to carry. I'm making a pipe/nipple system to fit to it and we are going to make a portable version of our electric wire system with a stool from IKEA and some tubing and wire.
