Don't keep them inside- brood them in the garage, and a tractor is the only way to go once they're outside.  You don't want to clean a coop 3 times a day!  Order from the closest place to you, to minimize the transit time.

This is our tractor for the meat birds. When it is in use, half of it is covered in a shade tarp and the other half with a plastic tarp. I'll have upwards of 30 birds at one time in there.

Do you by chance have any more details on that tractor? It's awesome! Is it all PVC piping?

These both look smaller then I expected for 25 birds. Could you two share the dimensions?
I am getting my first batch of egg layers at the end of the month but woul love to do meat birds right after they get out.
