Chicken Coop Skate

A few years ago we decided to raise some chickens.
We purchased a couple of coops and then set to building one of our own design.

A well built coop, one that can keep out the dogs and coyotes, can be heavy and bulky.

We decided to put wheels on the coop so that it could be moved to fresh grass.

We then had our own micro organic chicken farm.
This one measures 10 foot by 6 foot and holds 20 chickens.

But after two and a half years or so the coop, which took her a couple of weeks to put together, began to rot.

This was frustrating on several levels; the wheel assembly I built rotted out too.

Wood in contact with the ground rots. It is as simple as that.

A movable coop would require a lift kit that did not deteriorate.

This was easy, it could be machined out of aluminum.

But I also had to preserve the coop and facilitate its use by setting it on an aluminum sub frame.
(I could not let it just rot away.)

So the chicken coop wheels turned into a chicken coop dolly with considerable utility...

This is a very sturdy unit and it carries all the weight and stress associated with lifting the coop!

Chicken Coop Skate

The aluminum and stainless steel COOP SKATE.
So strong and durable ... it might last a lifetime.
