1. Placement of Your Swing

It's essential that you get your setup area ready before assembling your new swing. Make sure there is nothing in the way of the swinging motion. It's best to avoid setting up the swing in an area subject to high winds. If you have chicks, you can set the swing up in their brooder. They will need you to place them on the swing once or twice, and will quickly take to swinging. You may add a stump or ground perch below as an extra step for them to jump onto. Raise the swing as they grow.
