Here at On-The-Rise our hens are treated with the upmost love, and respect. After all they do run the coop here. Someone had shown Ms. Deb this wonderful idea, and that’s where it all started!
Since our kids aren’t here JUST for fun, we decided to have them assemble and install both of the Chunnel’s! They had fun cutting the wire, bending it into a tunnel the chickens (and boys) would fit through comfortably. After the kids hooked them up to the coops the chickens made a break for it immediately! They love being able to go out and eat fresh weeds, and grass.
Not only does Chunneling has health benefits on the chicken, but also our garden! We Chunnel them around our garden and behind all our sheds (where those pesky weeds are). Since chunneling we’ve noticed that our hens have actually become more sociable and happier- wouldn’t you feel better being able to leave the coop? AND our garden has less weeds and bugs around it. The Chunnel’s are everything we expected and more! Our kids love opening-up the door to let them out every morning and seeing the hens enjoy their morning stroll through the Chunnel.
More updates always to come!
