Concept and Principle behind Portable Chicken Coops

Why would anyone apart from you want portable chicken coops? There are so many reasons behind it. Are you aware of even one purpose? Well, I’ll give you a hint. The answer lies in the name itself “portable chicken coops”.

Yup, you are right, the need to move your chickens from one place to another and not having to put them in Rubbermaid containers is one of them. The next reasons are that when it comes to moving them around within the yard itself, you won’t have to manually move them around. So, in such cases it comes much easier to move around the coops with ease and comfort.

You can easily build one of any size and type. It doesn’t take anytime and well you yourself can do it with ease within a couple of minutes. Here we go again, there are so many things that you have to take into consideration when it comes to making one.

One of the most important things is that you have to make them spacious and make sure it has enough ventilation. The chickens shouldn’t feel cramped up and suffocated. The second most important thing you have to remember is that when building one you have to attach some sort of transportation system which in simple terms means that it has to have wheels underneath.

The third most important thing is that when it comes to shifting it to another city or state, it should easily come apart and well, you shouldn’t have difficulty in putting it back together.

See, this is the sort of stuff that I didn’t know either. Well, we’ve learnt something new and can always if needed, ask the experts from Cocoon for help and guidance. There are a million designs and colours that you can look at for reference. It is a lot of fun and is an interesting process.

There are a million blue prints you can look at when it comes to deciding how big or small you want the home to be. With this being said, you have to protect the poor creatures from predators. There are a million ways of doing it and well you will find your answers online. Ok, let me give you an example of what you can do. You can always have barbed wires put around your boundary wall. This is just one example and well, there are so many other things you can do.

Don’t look nervous, there is nothing to it. If you are having a problem, then you can always get in touch with professional companies like Cocoon who can help you build the perfect portable chicken coops as per your needs and requirements.

You know so far, in a lot of my work, I have always spoken about why it is needed, the purpose behind it and so much more. I have never really spoken about how it all came about and well the concept behind having one. Well, the answer to the above statement is that every creature especially chickens need a home to live a comfortable life. For more information, visit:

(CANCELLED) New Plymouth – Intro to Mindful Eating. 4-Week Tuesday Course. Starts Tue 02 May 2017 5.30pm Sessions.
AN INTRODUCTION TO MINDFUL EATING $99 for entire course including four classes, guided mindful eating meditations and weekly articles. Mindfulness has proven to be very effective in assisting people to eat in a more naturally healthy way. Healthy, in this case, meaning a way that is right for your lifestyle and your body.  Mindful eating involves use of meditation and mindfulness practices to build our capacity to be aware and to direct our attention to the present moment. With mindful eating, we can better observe our triggers to overeating and eating when we are not hungry. With mindfulness, we can develop a new, flexible relationship to food and eating. The use of mindful eating techniques can help us, with regular practise, to reconnect with our body’s own systems for hunger and fullness and to start to identify the thoughts, emotions and behaviours that lead us to overeat or eat when not hungry. By listening to what our bodies need, we can move toward a more positive relationship with food and with our bodies. This course is an abbreviated overview of Mindfulness Based-Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT). MB-EAT is an evidence-based, 12 session, group program created in the USA by Dr. Jean Kristeller and colleagues. What you get from this course… Ways to decrease mindless eating, emotional eating and binge eating. How to reconnect with your body’s own built in systems of hunger and fullness. How to release yourself from negative judgments about food and your body. How to slow down, savour and more fully taste and enjoy food. How to become less reactive and more calm; especially when making food decisions. What’s included in this course… Four weekly 60-minute group classes Three guided mindfulness meditations for you to download Handouts with useful reflections and practices Opportunities for questions and answers. No weigh-ins, no calorie counts… There are no weigh-ins or calorie counts required for you to get benefit from this course. The course encourages you to use your own insight and awareness to guide you. The course is designed by expert psychologists and delivered by experienced trainers. There is no religion or dogma in the course; just a focus on your own everyday experience. Week 1: What is Mindful Eating? What is mindful eating and how can it be helpful? What evidence do we have that it works? How can we cultivate mindful eating behaviour? Week 2: Our Body and Our Thoughts: Internal and External Triggers to Eating We will look at internal and external triggers for hunger and eating. We will discuss how our patterns and habits of thinking can influence when we eat and how much we eat. These thought patterns can lead to mindless eating, emotional eating and binge eating. We will cover black and white thinking and behavioural chaining. We will discuss the benefits of taking a non-judgemental stance towards ourselves and the food choices that we make. Week 3: Chasing Taste: Mindfulness of Our Taste Buds We will demonstrate how mindfulness of how our taste buds operate can influence how much of any one type of food we consume. We will look at how we can shift our focus from quantity of food to quality of food: we can eat less yet feel more satisfied. Week 4: Cultivating Connection and Kindness Towards Yourself and Your Body Many people with food issues make negative judgments about themselves and dislike their bodies. Guilt about food intake is common. We will discuss some ways to move away from this pattern and towards kindness and acceptance and a more positive relationship with food and with our bodies. What is Mindfulness? Mindfulness means “paying attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.” – Jon Kabat Zinn (Professor of Medicine Emeritus Stress Reduction Clinic and the Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine) Mindfulness and meditation are both gaining in popularity as more and more people discover how this simple skill can have a profoundly positive impact on your life.

The instructions and guidance will be explicitly inviting you to embrace your whole human experience as it happens, moment by moment with a radical acceptance.

Testimonials for Heidi and The Mindful Eating Programme: "I attended a 1-day workshop with Dr Heidi Douglass in October 2014, introducing us (providers and public) to Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Treatment. Dr Douglass has a lovely calm manner and “practiced what she preached’’ leading us in a day of mindfulness and eating awareness. I work with clients with eating disorders, and see benefits of this programme for people with disordered eating. The skills they would learn in this non-threatening environment could be very effective on their journey towards change.” Lynne Blake, Consultant Clinical Psychologist. Hamilton NZ. "Heidi established a warm and inviting setting for the workshop. She moved through the workshop at a pace that allowed one to absorb and consider the information. The content of the workshop had a good balance between presenting the empirical information and real life events. The experiential exercises were fantastic and provided a sample of how mindfulness and mindful eating would be beneficial for myself and the clients I work with in my practice." Vanessa Burrett, MSocSci, DipPsych(Clin), MNZPsSRegistered Clinical Psychologist, Hamilton, NZ. “I have attended Dr Douglass’s workshop.
