We're going to try this again when we have a larger enclosure for the hens, and when they are used to their territory. The swing panicked them when we tried installing it at the same time we put them into the brand new coop and the new 9' run. A rookie mistake.
Essentially a good product, just the ladies hate it so a complete waste of money I shall make it my mission to get them to love it
The swing comes complete and ready to hang and it looks nice, unfortunately my ladies peck at it but not interested in getting on it, they prefer the 2m pole to play with (great fun watching them go nose to tail Limbo dancing).
Made well, good idea but my chickens hate it. Wish I'd never purchased
Seemed sturdy enough but my silkies wanted NOTHING to do with. It was rather expensive I thought and after trying it and out (for when the free range) of the run I finally tossed it.
Omlet Says: We guess that the silkies did not accept it because of their lack of flying capabilities. However: if you train young silkies to use it they will often accept it.
