The Chicken Swing is designed to be set up in a variety of coops. It can be installed in a small urban coop or in a large walk-in coop. The best way to get your whole flock swinging is to start them swinging right in the brooder.
I was out doing chores one beautiful spring morning on our small farm in mid-Missouri, where we have horses, cattle, dogs, and chickens. My husband had recently added on a new outdoor area to our chicken coop. My chickens looked bored, and the outdoor space looked like it could use something to cheer it up a bit.
The idea of a swing just popped into my head. I thought I would build it and see if my chickens liked it. My first attempts were not right…it wobbled and scared them, but I kept at it. Finally I had a design start to take shape. But, would they use a swing? In a few days one of my braver hens tried it out, and they soon all loved it! It was not just a hanging perch to them, but an actual activity! They enjoy the motion of the swing, and the exercise. It is a joy to watch them swing on it.
Though I like to let them free range, there are periods that they are better off being locked up. The Chicken Swing gives them something to do. I sure feel better knowing they have an activity. It wasn’t long until I started to think about getting it ready for retail. I wanted it to be safe for all breeds and ages, and have the ability to fit in different styled coops. I worked with engineers, manufacturers, and designers to finally get what you see now.
I think every one with a coop needs The Chicken Swing. It truly is fun for the chickens and the people who care for them. A huge Thank You!! and a lot of eggs to all who helped get Fowl Play Products, LLC and The Chicken Swing launched! If you still ask why?… It’s simple… “Because the chicks dig it!”
