Chicken Tractor

When my husband first mentioned a chicken tractor, over 5 years ago, I laughed.  It sounded so funny!  After much research and discovery I have come to appreciate the idea of a mobile chicken coop that helps knock down weeds and bugs, fertilizes, protects the chickens and prevents any one area from being inundated with nitrogen.

 I studied many designs and decided on one I wanted to build for my chickens.  The picture above is my own chicken tractor in its Beta form.  I hope to finish it by adding a gravity-fed waterer and I still need to finish out the nesting area. 

So far the chickens love it!
