    yes, this looks extremely lightweight. Can you give more details of the design or materials list? i'd love to make one for my broilers.

    Are the curved poles pvc pipe? What diameter did you pick? Looks cute.

    Great idea! I might consider something like that to get my chickens to a more grassy area during the day.

    Thanks, that's what I figured. Would it be possible for someone to use that design but have a permanent coop attached? How does that work, are all chicken tractors just day care places and the permanent coops are somewhere else?

    My hens have a perm coop. This is just to move them around a bit for fresh grass and bugs. It is light but sturdy. On really hot days I cover some of the top with a tarp....

    My first post thanks to your awesome tractor. Is this something for fair weather? I am a newbie trying to learn where our new bantam chicks are going to live. I learn slower than they grow :)
