I started working on my new egg mobile this past weekend. Up til now I've always had my chickens in a traditional coop that you can't move. After researching and reading about them, I've decided to build my own "Egg Mobile" for a more efficient and healthy way of raising layers. First I found an old trailer that had a 4'x8' frame on it. It is very sturdy and better yet it was FREE! I decided that I want my coop to house between 36-40 hens. So I made the floor frame 8'x10' using 2x6's and attaching it to the trailer frame using U-bolts. Once I got the frame attached, I started working on the wire floor. I chose to do a wire floor instead of wood floor for easier maintenance and better ventilation. I chose to first put down 2"x2" woven wire (this was mostly for protection from predators, and it gave it more strength.) Once I was done with that, I put down traditional chicken wire over the top of that so the birds will still be able to walk on it, yet the poop will still be able to fall thru to the ground for the most part. I'll be working on the walls tomorrow, I decided on doing 7' in the front, and 5' in the back. With the roosts on one side and my 10 nest boxes accessible from the outside. I'll post more pics as progress is made.
