Made my Formex Snap Lock Coop into a chicken tractor

    I bought a set of 10-inch wheels and added them to my new Snap Lock coop so that I can roll it around the yard. I'm going to build a run, closed in on 4 sides with wire, to keep the chickens safe from predators. Haven't figured out yet how to secure it to the coop.

    The coop is on a base made of 2x4's. I drilled through the 2x4's to attach a rope pull, which I enclosed with some 1-inch clear tubing from the hardware store. The rope is knotted on the back, and the tubing makes for a comfortable grip when pulling. I put a pull on both sides of the coop.

    I have read reviews on this coop also it is built here in Georgia. I love your idea of building the tractor to fit it. As it is -it's predator proof. However this is not a coop for housing chickens 24/7. I would only recommend this coop for those that free range during the day.

    Would like to hear your comments on this coop. The wheels are a great addition. Spotted it after putting together a garden shed that is similarly made. The light weight and bullet proof material seems to be a plus. How many chickens are you keeping in it? How heavy is the plastic that it is made from? Thinking of predator potential for chewing through...
