Chicken tractor

Have a cool plan for a coop? Or new roost designs? Or you simply want to show off your new building.

Chicken tractor

Post by SusanH » Wed Feb 10, 2021 12:09 pm

Does anyone have a good easy plan for a chicken tractor? It will be used during the day only, as I plan to take the birds back to the main coop to be safe at night. So it can be very basic, just a box on wheels with some shade. Looking for ideas.

Hi @SusanH ...i built a tractor thisnpast year for my meat birds..real easy to build..my recomendation is BIG wheels..and use hardware cloth not poultry mesh...made the fram out of 2x2 and had a lifting handle on the end opposite the wheels...if youvtake the birds in at night theres no real need for wire on the underside... :run:
