    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. [​IMG]

    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 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?
