Chicken Coop with Wheels FAQs
Why would I want to move my chicken coop?
Anyone who has ever owned a chicken coop will tell you that chickens can really tear up the ground. If you value your lawn at all, you will want to relocate the chicken coop every few days; otherwise, the damage to your lawn will be permanent in the area that your chicken coop sits.
Yes, you could try to drag your chicken coop across the lawn without wheels, but, assuming it's not too heavy to do that, you'll probably do more damage to the lawn attempting that than the chickens would!
The only good solution is a truly portable chicken coop - one that has wheels!
Can I move a chicken tractor myself or will I need help?
The answer to that question depends on your physical abilities as well as how flat the ground is that your movable chicken coop sits on. The chicken coops with wheels listed here are relatively small and light, ranging from about 80 to 160 pounds. Keep in mind that the majority of the weight will be resting on the wheels as you tilt the structure up, so most people in relatively decent shape should be able to tilt them onto their wheels.
Of course, if the terrain that you want to wheel the coop over is not somewhat smooth, even the strongest person might have a tough time moving their chicken coop - with or without wheels.
Some people attach their chicken coop with wheels to a tractor style lawn mower or small ATV and move them around easily that way, too.
Are these the only chicken coops on wheels that you have?
The chicken tractors listed on this page are the only chicken coops that have pens permanently attached and that also have a set of wheels. Because you can customize Horizon Structures™ and OverEZ™ chicken coops and chicken runs and that one of those customization options is adding wheels to them, there a bunch more chicken coops on this site that could potentially have wheels.
In fact, OverEZ™ chicken coops give you the option of adding 2 wheels or 4 wheels to their coops. A chicken coop with four wheels is much easier to move than one with only two because you never have to tilt it up at all. Horizon Structures™ chicken coop wheel packages are designed for the specific coop and are either 2 wheel or 4 wheel with the exception of their Mini Coop, which gives you the option of selecting two or four wheels.
