    We want to move my chickens and geese to the back yard with their coops. The problem is the chicken coop is too big and heavy. We have to move it around several trees and the house to get it there. What would be the best way to accomplish this task?
     
  2. Can you afford taking the time to disassemble, move and reassemble? Is it possible?

    If you can pull it with a truck it may save some time if it is doable.

    Possible alternative. Mobile coop.

    I meant it as an alternative to moving the main coop so the birds can enjoy other parts of the yard. I had the same problem when I wanted to relocate my coop but it was not worth the trouble so I built this mobile coop so they can be anywhere I want during the day.
