I recently had a meat chicken as a pet. (Yes I know that was a big mistake) Well she was trained to knock on the door of our house, wait for us to put her in her tote, and then we'd bring her inside. Might I add she was a very spoiled chicken. Anyway, in the spring I plan to get a couple chickens and I was wondering if a mobile coop would be a good idea to have. I have ducks and they roam around the yard, but they do not travel very far from the house. Would it be good for around the garden? And do they keep the chickens safe? Any replies would be appreciated and any suggestions on good, hardy, and nice chickens would be appreciated as well.
