Had chickens for three weeks but they haven't used the swing yet
Bought the chicken swing. My husband thought I was not serious. No swinging as yet. But the comments keep coming. "Any swinging today?" I don't want to train them to use it! I did have expectations they would just jump on. Spent an hour today attempting to place the flock on it. No action.
Omlet Says: It can take a while to train them Katrina, if you need tips there are lots of videos on Youtube that will be helpful :)
We love the chicken swing.... and so do our girls!
Have moved swing around several times but at present ignoring it

I received this item free as part of my order. It's a real talking point but I'm not sure the girls have quite grasped what they are supposed to do! Maybe they only perform when they haven't got an audience! I can't wait to see one of them swinging away!
Purchased this as a boredom beater for my girls. Had it a while now but not actually caught any using it.
With the awful weather we've had they spend a lot of time under cover. Hopefully with summer approaching may be able to tempt them.
What an amazing idea. We have got very happy chickens, all trying to get on the swing at once, I will send photo's as soon as poss.
The chickens love this swing and it's a delight to see them swinging on it. Very cool.
Great idea but my chickens haven't even tried it. Not sure if they will, I keep persisting with them and help but they just jump straight off.
I am impressed by the quality of the product, but I would expect this given the price. While I haven't seen any of my girls on it, there has definitely been some muddy feet on it though. I am going to raise it up a bit more at the weekend.
