Verified Reviews for The Chicken SwingBack to Product
Looks really good in my walk in run. - Elizabeth,
I put up the swing in my walk in run. I have only had my lovely ladies just over a week now so they are still getting used to their new home. They have pecked at the swing but none of them have ventured on it yet. However we have had a lot of windy weather so this might have put them off a bit. I’m sure they will use it eventually.

Chickens don’t use it - Owen,
Solid, construction fine but as per other reviews. Chickens simply don’t use it. Still frightened if it moves after over a month

Good activity source - Alastair, West Sussex,
Bought this recently and our new flock are starting to get used to it now with competition at times for the best perch!

Cute - Andrea,
It's a well made product but my girls don't like it for some reason, they won't go near it at all.

Omlet Says: Hi Andrea, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. What a shame! Perhaps they just need to get used to it and build up some confidence. I'm sure they'll love it once they give it a go.
Quality product - Lucy,
I liked this but my chickens do not especially in their coop so it is in the garden hanging from a tree branch in the hope that as weather improves so will their inquisitiveness????

Omlet Says: Fingers crossed for you! I'm sure as soon as the sun is out they'll be interested.
Good but you need space for it - Yvonne,
Received this a few days ago and set it up in thier covered run. One of my young braver hens kept jumping on it, startling herself and leaping off, sending the swing in all directions allong with the other 2 girls who dashed in all directions. It does actually swing quite a bit so not hugely suited to a smallish run(mine is 4m by 1m). While they are on lockdown I have removed it and will set it up in thier larger enclosure when they have more space. I am sure that with the encouragement of treats they will start to use it - especially Dorothy the Brave.

interesting - Amanda,
Well made sturdy product. Easy to hang with clear instructions. The chickens freaked when I first hung it. Since then they have become very skilful at avoiding it haha! In time I am hopeful they will enjoy it.
