    I finally completed the Chicken Tractor, delivery of the wheels took a lil longer than I thought it would.

    Sorry for the large size, I even reduced them 1st. I've decided I'm only going to keep the 4 Ameracunas in the Tractor. Next tme I'll make it 4 ft wide and 10 ft long instead of 3x8. Oh well, another project possibility [​IMG]

    :)If you paint the wire ,flat black, you will be able to see the
    chickens better. I saw that on here some place.

    That's awesome. I didn't notice a perch, though. Did I miss something?
