    Chicken Tractor for the new Ameracunas. I should have made it bigger than 3'x8', but for 4 hens it should be ok.

    The wheels are only on when the tractor is moved to a new location. I've decided to use only 1 nesting box at a time.

    I'm always amazed, they're so curious & smart

    Getting older but still haven't learned to walk up the ramp at night & sleeping inside instead of going under the coop, so I had to add a temporary wall to keep them out.

    Here he is, one of the 4 Ameracuna pullets that ended up being a Roo.

    He's so beautiful and proud. I'm keeping him for sure.

    We're tired, it's tough working with those chickens.
