DIY Chicken Tunnel System – Make The Chickens Do The Gardening

Raising chickens in your backyard? Here’s a chicken tunnel system idea that will make you AND your chickens happier!

Chickens can do a lot more than just produce fresh eggs for us. They till and fertilize the soil, and they love to eat weeds, snails, bugs, and other critters that trespass our gardens.

Our Pick
Portable Pop-Up Chicken Run

Four sides of the cage are made of mesh so that your pet(s) could enjoy the sunshine and fresh air outside, eat grass or insects, but be protected from predators.

By making a movable chicken tunnel, chooks become effective helpers around the garden since you can direct them to areas that need to be taken care of. You’ll be amazed at how much work they can do! :)

Love it? Your chickens will love it, too! With a chicken tunnel, your chooks are basically free range. They can run all they want without you having to supervise them or worry about predators if any!
