Want to pasture your chickens, but think you have too many for a small, portable chicken coop? Think again. You can do it!
Coops don't have to be tiny to be movable. With wheels and a light, yet strong, frame made out of 2x2 lumber, even a larger coop can glide over the pasture beautifully. Try this step by step tutorial showing the major design components of a movable coop built for about two dozen hens, and get your girls on the move!
Pastured hens enjoy health benefits from grazing on fresh ground and eating bugs and weed seeds. Their eggs will be healthier, too. Bonus: they'll improve your lawn and fertilize your gardens with their droppings. You can't get more symbiotic than that.
