Chicken RV

Our chickens needed a vacation. So we got them a camp trailer. Actually our yard and garden needed the vacation from the chickens. We free range our chickens and their ranging ruined our yard. Biff is going to fix that for us. Any way.......... We bought an old camp trailer and gutted it. Lyle added nest boxes and roosts. Now the chickens are out in the hay field and loving it. They spend the day scratching and eating bugs and grass and seeds. They spend the nights in their cozy safe trailer. We can move the trailer from place to place so the chickens always have a fresh place to eat. Pretty nifty huh!?!


  1. What an interesting way to house chickens. My youngest brother once spent a whole winter living with his chickens on his homestead because his cabin was not yet built. I think he would have preferred to do it in your type of chicken house.

  2. Our chickens have tried to destroy our yard/garden as well. Gotta love them but sometimes don't like them!

  3. I think that is the coolest chicken method I have ever seen... I absolutely love it! Genius. I want one... but it needs to float!

  4. Fantastic Idea! But now Destiny is Jonesing one for our place. I could even back up my threat of making the occasional unruly child actually sleep with the chickens!
    Can't wait to see how things develop for you guys. Way to go for it!
