Dern it! LOL My husband's grandparents have a 108 acre pear/cherry/apple orchard in Wentachee & maybe they would hook me up? I use the rubbermaid tubs as brooders, too! They are easy to clean/bleach out & come in just the right sizes.
What a GREAT idea!!! I think it would work well. All you have to do is a little tweaking of the box to make it work for you, which you are already planning to do, and you have some small coop/tractors.
heavy duty lawn mower wheels on one side with something to prop up the other side when stationary should work. Kind of like a travel/camping trailer set up.
What a great idea! We live about 30 minutes from an area called "Apple Hill"... in fact I'm planning on a quick trip up there this weekend with a friend and her mother. Me-thinks I'll be inquiring into the availability of a bin or two. Thanks for the post... it never crossed my mind to look into those!
