A Miss Pepperpot chicken on The Chicken Swing A Miss Pepperpot chicken on The Chicken Swing

All chicken keepers know that birds love to perch and they will hop on to anything they can lay their feet on to give them a good view of the world. The Chicken Swing is a great perch idea because it provides more than just a place to sit - it actually swings! The patented design allows chickens to pump the swing themselves, with no need for a friendly push from the owner. Shaped like a mailbox, with a corn-like texture for grip, the Chicken Swing allows chickens of all types and ages to torque the perch. Quite simply, your hens will be swinging themselves silly in no time.

Ideal for hanging in any chicken coop, enclosure or chicken run, The Chicken Swing is a great hen toy that will reduce boredom and keep your pets hentertained. They'll love being able to hop up as they please, stretch their wings and swing back and forth above their pals. Synchronised swinging is also very much acceptable, should your chickens decide to share their new toy.

Made from safe quality parts that are built to last, The Chicken Swing is suitable for poultry of all ages and breeds. Although it is best to introduce chickens to the swing when they are young, adults will soon get the hang of it too. Attach The Chicken Swing so it hangs close to the ground, and as your chicks or chickens get used to climbing on, increase the height. Eventually, you will want it hanging high enough so as not to be an obstacle to any hens on the ground.

The Chicken Swing is a fantastic accessory for every chicken keeping area, and you are sure to henjoy watching your pets in action as much as they enjoy using it. Perch measures 16.25" in length.

Frequently Asked Questions

The swing is 41cm (16.25") long.

Make sure you place the swing free from any obstructions such as walls, mesh or other things on the run. Choose a sheltered spot under cover so the hens can do their swinging no matter the weather.

Eventually you ideally want the Chicken Swing to sit above the chickens’ heads, so that they will be able to swing without the risk of bumping into one of their friends, but it’s wise to start with it lower to the ground to get your flock used to it.

Choose your most adventurous chicken and place her on the swing, which at this stage should be hanging very low to the ground. Give her something delicious straight away, so that she associates the swing with yummy treats. Do this a few times until you feel she’s comfortable perching on the swing. At this point, push the swing slightly to get it moving. Reward the chicken every time she swings towards you. Push a bit more every time you’re trying, and start lifting the Chicken Swing higher and higher above the ground.

As chickens are flock animals the rest of your hens will be encouraged to try once someone has had a go!

THIS IS ADORABLE. - Irene, east yorkshire,

I had some ladder styler swings for my chickens, and they didn't like the swing. We had a small solid swing in our old coop, but it was too small for our Omlet pen, so I bought the Omlet Swing. It is absolutely adorable, in bright yellow solid plastic with ropes and a spacer to keep swing in place. We put perches in, so the chickens seem to prefer that for now. When they are ready, they have a lovely swing to swing on.

Disappointed - Deborah, east yorkshire,

I set the two swings, one in each of my Omlet runs, just above ground level and not one of my chickens has tried it. After doing some research I found a US you tube video which describes how you have to train the birds to use their swing. First set it low level, stand in front of swing with some corn to entice them on so they get used to the way they have to grip the rail. Then gradually raise the swing. I’m disappointed that none of this procedure is described on your website. I feel the product is mis-sold and I have wasted my money.
