Chickens love it, excellent product.

My baby chicks were a little nervous at first but now they love it.

I'd never bought toys for chickens before but this latest batch are pets for my boys and this was their savings. We set it up at the height it will stay at as the chicks could already flutter high onto things, and within a week I was giggling at the sink seeing chick butts swing in and out of view. Yes its a bit pricey but it looks like it will last, sturdy plastic and metal.
Still waiting for hens to try it!

A fun idea but hens don't quite seem to have got the idea! 2

Chickens don’t use it
21 September 2021
Solid, construction fine but as per other reviews. Chickens simply don’t use it. Still frightened if it moves after over a month 2

Omlet Says: Hi Owen,
Thank you for your message. It can take indeed some extra training for some chickens to get them to eventually use their swing. You can find useful tips here

Haven't Quite Mastered It Yet

Sadly our rescue ladies have yet to master The Chicken Swing, but I'm patiently hoping that one day they do! 2

It's a well made product but my girls don't like it for some reason, they won't go near it at all. 2

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.

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???? 2

Good but you need space for it

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. 2

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. 2

We can't get the Girls off it ... a great play platform for them. 2

Initially anchor the swing low off the ground so it doesnt move much. Position treats so they can only be reached from the swing. Soon your hens will be happily hopping onto the new ‘wobbly perch’ for their treats. Gradually (I’m talking days here not hours) you can raise the height of the swing and release it from its anchoring. Two of my four rescue hens can now hop onto the unanchored swing to get to their treats. It’s great to see them working their wings to achieve balance. Lots of good exercise for them too and great boredom buster for all of them as the others hang around underneath waiting for scraps. Actually it has proved to be much more therapeutic and fun than I thought it would be. Highly recommend - perseverance will be rewarded! 2
