    Finished the tractor. Chickens love the grass
    just not sure about why and how it moves. I only
    plan on using it when we are home during the day.
    Thanks to all who posted their tractors, I got a lot of good advice.
    Only advice I have is don't construct entire tractor 4'x8' out of 2x4's.

    Wheels def. help-I got carried away w/lumber HEAVY

    I used hardware cloth for the sides and chicken wire on the top

    My husband added the wheel/jack- works great
    just crank it up and push it

    You are mocking me with your flat ground and green grass!

    Great job though. I wish I could have one, the tractor, not just the husband that knows how to figure out the jack thingies. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies.
    I think my husband remembered the jack because
    he soon realized after it was built, that I could'nt
    move it, and he would have to everytime I wanted the
    chickens somewhere else.
