Our Mobile Chicken Coop Setup

Is it possible to free range chickens on a 1 acre suburban lot? We show you our backyard chicken coop set up, including our mobile coop and fencing. We also explain why we chose this setup and what we would do differently.

*Guildbrook Farm believes in minimalism and fighting excessive consumerism. Every day we are bombarded with ads and marketing trying to convince us to spend money on products we don’t need or want. We don’t like it done to us, and so we aren’t going to do it to you. However, on occasion we may suggest a product that we use or like and we will link to that product on Amazon or another site for your reference. If you purchase through that link, we may make a small commission. This is at no cost to you and helps to support our blog and vlog. As always, we suggest you research carefully before making any purchase and buy locally whenever possible. Thank you for your support.


  1. Do you possibly have building plans for this coop? Or even dimensions of the total hutch, doors, nesting boxes? I really like the set up and think it would work great for us. Would like to replicate it!

      If you are talking about the prepper pantry spreadsheet, it wouldn’t help you or anyone because it is my own products that I use. I documented every single item over the course of a year then trimmed the list to basic necessities. This is based on how I cook, so everyone will have a unique list. This is one where each person will just have to put in some elbow grease, but it is worth the effort it in savings.

  3. Love this design….is is heavy to move around ?

      It’s solid and requires 2 people with the smaller wheels. Once we get the larger wheels on it should be easier to move.
