Chickshaw building plans

I would like to build my own chickshaw so that I can move my chickens around the property and then put up electric netting/fencing as needed. I saw one in Paul Wheaton's post on the the different ways to keep chickens and how pastured poultry paddocks was a great way to go. Any tips on where I can find some design plans? Our property is a bit hilly so it can't be very heavy (will be manually moved).

Jane, there are a lot of topics in this forum that cover a myriad of ways to move chickens and their gear around. I would try the search function with the keyword of "chickshaw" and see what topics, other than this one, show up. Most there are various forms of tractor and mobile coop, but I hope you find the plans you are looking for.
