How strong is the build? They might be concerned of it falling apart or collapsing. Some of these coops aren't built to be moved a lot. Maybe you might want to attach some bicycle tires to it or something so it's easier to move, without too much strain.

I did that with a prefab rabbit hutch i had, framed it out with 2x4s and put 2 bike tires on the end, made a nice easy chicken tractor I used for a few years 🤟

How wonderful! :love I hope to someday own a chicken tractor that has bicycle tires. But currently, my coop isn't going nowhere, at least not without the help of a bulldozer. :lol:

I sold that one and built 5 new ones with smaller inflatable tires, they worked well until they deflated over time lol I really need to air them up 😅

That sounds like a smart idea actually
