This A Frame tractor is designed for 3 to 6 chickens. The footprint is six feet by four feet, for a total of 24 square feet. I built it without a plan. It's pretty simple, and is roughly based on similar designs to what I've seen on BYC. Cost to build was about $80. I already had the shingles and a bit of scrap wood on hand, which helped to keep the cost down. It has a large door on one side of the A, and an egg door on the other side. The wheels are 5 inch (solid), and are bolted to the back 2x4. To move it, you lift up the front end by the handles, and lift it like a wheel barrow. It's too big of a reach for one child to move, but an adult can do it alone with a little bit of work. The enclosed roosting area is about a foot off the ground, and is roughly 2.5 feet by 3 feet.
