Akasha Istar, Surf Coast Natural Farms
We are feeling very lucky and blessed to have one of @eddsmoveablechooksheds latest creations. After first seeing them a few years ago, owning one of these beauties has been on the to do list for quite a while.
Five years ago, we lost our designer flock of rainbow layers that we’d created by cross breeding Araucanas and Barnvelders – Araucana’s for egg colour and temperament, and Barnvelder for size, health, and stamina. They laid beautiful large spotty green eggs. A fox decimated them all.
Now we are rebuilding our flock, it became super important to ensure their safety whilst allowing them to still free range. We thought about a Royal Rooster or an Eglu Omlet chicken tractor, but because of the big size of our pasture those solutions just didn’t make sense.
So we now have an Edd’s moveable chicken tractor with 50m electric netting and solar energizer, to deter any foxes that come near to our free ranging ladies, and also keep our chicken friends in the orchard and off the veggie patch and verandah!
So far, the tractor seems very well made, solid, and tows well! The droppings fall right through, so we are all looking forward to no more mucking out of the chook shed on weekends! The wire certainly gives us a zap so hopefully it gives any cheeky foxes a zap too!
Our shopping list for a chook shed included: fox proof, moveable, cool in summer, clean egg collection, mesh floor, easy clean. You answered all our needs. Can’t wait to see what the chook family think of it!⠀

The 15 bird shed has been the perfect addition to our hobby farm.
Our girls were right at home within days and the security fencing with solar energiser gives us complete peace of mind that they are safe. There is plenty of space for them to roam around and as a result we have happy and productive hens.
The ongoing support and advice from Peter and Rosemary, for us as first time chook owners, has been invaluable and we highly recommend Ed’s Moveable Chook Sheds!
The poultry fencing we got from Rosemary Wemyss is amazing.
A couple of months ago we had a huge brand land on it and it bounced back like new after the chainsaw got it off.
Yesterday’s gale winds brought the top of the same tree down on it in exactly the same spot. Fence still good as new.

Just want to say a huge thankyou to Rosemary and Peter Wemyss at Edd’s Moveable Chook Sheds.
They not only sold me a great fence at the best price around but they took the time to show me how to install it and gave me tips and tricks to get the best out of it. Thanks I’ll be back for sure.
Also they sell chicken tractors to die for so if you are in the market and want to keep your chickens safe from predators I highly recommend them.
Very happy. I will be back again. Excellent prices and service.
Received shed today. Very prompt service and polite helpful staff. Great price. Thank you so much.
Great service and fast delivery, excellent. Will be a regular customer. Thank you
