Mobile Chicken Coops

Farm Director Jack Algiere and former Rangelands Manager Phil Haynes (now Assistant Livestock Manager at Carversville Farm Foundation) present the design and operation of the custom-built mobile chicken coops used at Stone Barns Center to steward the pastureland and produce eggs on the farm.

The mobile chicken coops were built with easily accessible materials and designed to be customizable for each farmer’s particular operation.
