    Cackellac 812

Cackellacs are being used for meat chickens, turkeys, laying hens, ducks and geese. Moveable shelters are the preferred method of providing poultry with truly fresh pastured every day, while containing them effectively.

The 812 Cackellac is designed to make moving your small flock easy and enjoyable with enough room for up to 40 laying hens or meat birds. The 812 is very light weight, making it a pleasure to move. The chickens are left in the 812 for moving. The 812 lifts off the ground a few inches by the two flat proof wheels at the front corners, each wheel has it’s own jack mechanism and will lock in the up position, the shelter is then lifted slightly from the back and slowly moved as the chickens walk along inside on the ground, the shelter is set down to the ground by releasing the jacks at the front corners. After a few moves the chickens will have learned move right along with the Cackellac to the fresh grass.

In the winter months, when the Cackellacs are not used for poultry, they can be used for storage, or as a greenhouse—you can park it exactly where you want it!  Assembly instructions and the simple design makes it easy for a handy person to do it in an afternoon. Weighs only 150lbs!
