    Mobile chicken coop

    Mobile chicken coop

    This mobile chicken coop has two unique features: a simple mechanism for lowering wheels to raise the coop for moving, and a battery powered automatic door to let the birds out of the roosting enclosure in mornings. Thus it is simple to move around to provide fresh foraging, and does not require tending first thing in the morning.
