812 Cackellac

812 Cackellac

Light-weight | Completely Portable | Multi-Purpose | Durable | Food Security

Tired of hauling heavy, wood & steel shelters across your land? Or…simply don’t even want to start down that path? (yeah, us neither! Been there, done that.)

Moving a shelter with a sheet metal roof is hard work. And kids can’t always help with that. It almost makes you dread chore time. Which is bad, because you know fresh pasture is vital for your birds. How else do you get healthy meat and eggs?

Something lighter and more portable would make your life so much easier. Never mind the fact your back will thank you!

Perfect for:

  • small farms
  • homestead flocks
  • breeding programs
  • lambs & goat kids
  • small acreage

Meet the 812 Cackellac

It solves the issues of heavy, bulky shelters. Of sore backs and kids not being able to help. Of moving all feeders and waterers in addition to the shelter. Of dreading chores.

Instead, it’s lightweight. Completely portable – everything is hanging inside. Kids can move it. Plus, the 812 is fun to move – because it’s easy!
