    Dylan and Angie's back yard chicken tractor.
    I built this chicken tractor out of scrap laying around my house with the exception of the wire and wheels, its functional now but still not quite finished, I've realized that there are a few improvements to make not to mention some touch up painting.
    My dad helping me roof the hutch

    Looking at the back into the hutch
    Trap door for easy chicken entrance/exit access
    Inside the hutch
    Front of 98% done Tractor
    Back of almost complete hutch
    side showing ladder and trap door
    Our baby Barred Rocks
    Our two very bossy red stars

    Well I wish I had taken more pictures through the whole building process but oh well. I still plan to improve the wheel system and cut a front door into the hutch as interior access is bad. Also I did not plan how I would clean it so I have to do do something. I will add more pictures when done and also of my two turkeys.

    Thanks for looking, Dylan

    I like the idea of not having to lift the weight up when you move it, but do you just secure the hens inside the hutch when you wheel around?

    This would work well for a grow out pen, keeps them safe and keeps them close to the adults.

    I have been cruising the cul cart at HomeDepot to build a similar design. Did you put aa solid floor in or one that can drop out for cleaning? Any other improvments you would make?
