So, you want to plant some yummy treats for your chickens that they can enjoy year-round? Our Raised Bed building plans will help you do just that! They were designed by an MPC staffer and her husband as an inexpensive, easy-to-build solution to the problem of chickens making a dustbowl out of whatever greens you plant for them, like our Chicken Salad Seed Mix.
For $25-$30 in materials, you can build this 18" x 18" hinged bed that will protect the roots and bottom two inches of your plants. Your flock will only be able to access what grows through the wire mesh. You can make your bed larger, too--up to three feet long, depending on your needs!
These plans include large photos and step-by-step instructions. You will need some familiarity with power tools, but there's nothing overly complicated. If you find you can't complete the build--or you choose not to--no problem! We offer a 30-day, money-back guarantee. Just contact us and we'll refund your purchase price.
