Are your chicken’s high maintenance?

Getting up early in the morning in the freezing cold to let your chickens out SUCKS,

Let alone cleaning out their chicken poop filled water, sweeping away the manure out of their coop and then not forgetting to lock them away safely at night!

Wouldn’t it be nice if something did it all for you?

It let your chickens out, locked them away safely and was well designed enough that you don’t have the clean away the manure.

We have the solution for you! The Chicken Caravan 30 will take care of your chickens.

 

World renowned permaculture expert Geoff Lawton explains how he uses his Chicken Caravan 30 on his own farm  


The Chicken Caravan 30 is an automated chicken coop that houses 30 hens

It lets your hens out in the morning and then locks them away at night. It is powered by solar, keeps the water fresh, the feed dry, eggs clean and it’s really easy to move.

This means you can move your chicken coop around so your grass doesnt get destroyed and no snakes can take up residence inside your chicken coop.

 


 

Collecting dirty eggs just sucks.

With the Chicken Caravan 30, you will never need to collect a dirty egg again.

You see, the nesting box is a rollaway nesting box, meaning as soon as the hen lays her egg it rolls down to a collection area not accessible to the hen (so she won't be able to stand on the egg and break it).

This means your fresh eggs are kept clean, safe and most importantly not making a mess that you have to clean up!


Rollaway nesting boxes are not enough though!

Every nesting box needs nesting box gates.

Why you may ask?

Well did you know that some hens will sit in the nesting boxes at night and fill it with poo? Then in the morning the eggs are laid in that poo, and voila, you have dirty eggs.

To avoid this, you need automatic gates that close on your rollaway nesting box in the afternoon, so the birds won't be able to sit in the nesting boxes all night, resulting in clean eggs for you. 

 


 

A feeder that your chickens will LOVE!

A lot of chicken feeders on the market are not designed for the outdoor environment.

But never fear, your Chicken Caravan 30 comes with a large, gravity fed galvanized steel feeder, with wide weather covers on all four sides.

This hangs securely under the Chicken Caravan 30, ensuring your feed stays dry.

We have also created a huge metal funnel that makes filling the feeder a breeze.


The water supply on the Chicken Caravan 30 can not get dirty.

See if you have a bowl of water instead, the chickens can scratch dirt or grass into it easily or even worse, if they do a poop and their back side is hanging over the bowl, Ewww!

With nipple drinkers, the hen touches her beak on the stainless steel drinker and water starts trickling out. There is no way for the hens to contaminate the clean water.

We have designed the Chicken Caravan 30 so you can put a 20-30 litre water container directly into the top of the unit. This way your water is inside and not out in the sun.

Simply put your own water drum in the top, secure it with the strap provided, connect the nipple drinker pipe to the water drum and your hens are ready to drink fresh, clean water.

 


An engineered Twin Layer Roof that keeps your chickens dry, cool and protected.

The Chicken Caravan 30 roof is more than just a cover. This roof keeps the hens dry in the rain and cool in the summer. It does this thanks to the specially engineered Twin Layer roof construction.

The construction of the roof has a top and bottom panel and between these 2 panels is an air gap. This air gap provides insulation from the hot sun in summer time.

Secondly, the colour is silver so it will reflect a lot of heat right away and the heat that is generated from the sun does not penetrate directly into the Chicken Caravan because of the air gap.

So your hens can happily come and go into the Chicken Caravan throughout the day to lay their eggs and enjoy a more stable temperature away from the hot sun.


Yes this coop CAN be moved by hand!

You will not need a 68 horsepower tractor or a german tank (although they would be cool).

We have learnt over the years that if the chicken coop is hard to move, it will not get moved. So we have come up with a design that is REALLY EASY to move.

Simply pull the Chicken Caravan along by the tow handle.

The wheels are tall and wide, and these big wheels make it easy to move without worrying about small humps and dips in the grass.

The tow handle is mounted to the front steering wheel and has a built in brake, so when you park your Chicken Caravan in one spot it will stay in that spot.

 


 

What if you don't want to move it by hand?

What if you want to tow it behind your ride-on mower or quad bike?

We were waiting for you to ask that question. I get it, you have 2 arms and 2 legs, but you also have a powerful yellow quad bike you’d like to use.

So, we have built in a fold out tow ring that is placed over the tow ball on your quad bike or mower and it can tow it along for you, It couldn’t get any easier.


Increase laying production with lights.

In the short days of winter your hens will not be laying many eggs. With the optional lighting kit you can increase the day length and increase the egg production from your happy hens.

It also doubles as a light for you so you can see while you are using the Chicken Caravan 30 at night, so you dont have to bring a torch with you.

 

 


 

No poop in this coop!

No you won’t have to clean out chicken poop every week from a smelly coop. I'm sure this will be one of your favourite things about the Chicken Caravan 30.

You see the hens do most of their pooping at night while on their perches, and under those perches is a mesh floor, so all the poop falls through to the ground under the coop. So you don’t have to clean poop from this coop, at all.
