    Describe 'country tractor' here I had a friend show me a tractor similar to the ones that I am using now. I like to move my coops daily, but I like a coop to have a balance of shade and sunlight. The coops are right above the run but as long as I move them daily I dont run into any problems with run space. They are 4x8 with a 4x4 or 4x5 coop on top.[​IMG]
    I use 6 inch wheels on all my coops, and automatic watering systems made from various buckets that i have collected at my job. I use 1 nipple per 4 chickens on my watering systems. These are two tractors that i am actually running on my yard right now. You can see my pasture in the background with a tractor running out there with my barred rock rooster in it. In the far distance you can see our barn across the pasture at my dads house. I currently have 5 of these tractors built and I have another half done. Pictured here are my 10 week old red sex link pullets. [​IMG]
    The tractor on the right has my 10 week old Barred Rock, and Buff Orphingtons in it. This picture gives you a better view of the bucket waterers that I made. I used nipples ordered from C Conly poultry online and have been the easiest nipples ive ever used.[​IMG]

    This is my daughter checking on our laying hens. ( barred Rock and Rhode Island Reds)[​IMG]
    Well thank you for looking for looking at my page and I hope you enjoyed it. IF any questions just post and I will reply.

    Not much in the way of how these were built, mostly a few pictures of completed tractors.

    Would have loved to see pics and read about your build process. Also, how do you clean the coop part? And is there any ventilation up in the coop? Would have loved to see inside!

    It would be nice to see the inside of one of these set ups.
