    The Dangers of a Tractor-style Coop

    This was my flock before yesterday. Now I've got three dead chickens and two injured. If it had been predators, I could understand. If it had been my own mistake, I'd be upset but it would make sense. No, my chickens were killed by something simple and that we never saw coming. My...

    Which prefab tractor? Money is no object.

    My daughter received 6 chicks for her birthday. We've got about three weeks until we are going to need to move them outside. I'm thinking a tractor is the ideal way to go. We have plenty of land (12 acres), but LOTS of predators including weasels. I want the very best Fort Knox of chicken...
