    Hi everyone,
    I am looking for a mobile coop design that can hold a least 14 hens, I currently have an A-frame coop holding 7 hens, it used to be mobile, but it now isn't. I want to purchase more chickens, maybe 3-4 more, but I can't until I make a new coop. I really would like a mobile one on account of me not owning my house. (Would really love one with a barn design)

    Any large mobile design works though, I can add a paint job. Thanks guys

    You're going to be hard put to find something large enough to healthily house that many birds full time and still be able to move it easily.
    Space was covered here https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1150918/can-i-keep-more-chickens

    Do you have a truck or tractor or other vehicle to move a larger coop/run?
    Have you considered using electrified portable poultry netting?

    I have an Ford F-250, I can move a large coop for sure. I may have made a mistake, I meant to say a coop that can fit at least 10. I already have three other birds in a small coop by themselves. I basically just want three extra hens. I don't need any run plans, I have three acres for them to forage on, and a temporary run pre-built. I really don't want to use shock fence, its too pricey for my budget. Thanks

    I have thought about that, its a pretty good idea, but the trailer is the problem. I'll have to talk my Dad. Thanks for the help.
