    This chicken tractor started it's life as a doghouse bought from a neighbor for $30.

    The first step was to lighten it up, cut out most of the floor, elevate it, and add tires to make it "mobile".

    The race was on to get the coop and run finished before the chicks grew out of their box.

    Once the wheels were on it was rolled out back and painted

    Put a smaller door in and screen in the bottom and windows

    After the coop finished, added a 4' X 8' run

    Screen in the coop, added a pulley system to open and close the door, all that is needed now is the chickens!
