Hopefully this is the proper area to post about the topic of chicken tractors.
First questions and then go from there:
First off I'm looking for a design or pics of a Large tractor that can house up 17 + or - a couple birds that are Laying hens. I prefer to build out of wood instead of PVC, but will look at PVC designs. I looked at the "hen hideout" here: http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hen-hideout
That is a brilliant design, but too small for my needs. I even planned out one similar on Sketchup twice that size, and it's still a bit lacking. I was going to use the one IBC tote tank for the coop part, but that could only house 8 birds at max. 48"x48"x40"
I'm thinking of either good strong tarps from Amazon, or go with corrugated panel, which I'm no fan of due to the gaps (snakes). Of course I could put on hardware cloth, then panel over the cloth...
Anyway. I've looked through designs here so far and have found nothing for Layers yet.
