    This chicken tractor is made onto a raised planter for a garden.
    You alternate planters each year to have fertile ground to work on.
    You could just make a planter with wheels on it, and move it like a wagon.

    [​IMG] I think it's a cross between; a doghouse with a yard, but no floor, and a wheelbarrow (or more appropriately, a "Georgia Buggy", I'll bet nobody even knows what that is anymore)[​IMG]
