    Hey Ya'll,
    I have a question! So I'm building a new coop in the spring and I want to make it a large mobile coop. I've heard of people using old hay trailer running gears as the base but I'm having trouble finding one. Does anyone have an idea of where I should look?
    I live in close proximity to Lancaster, Pennsylvannia

    Thanks!
    ~ Sammy

    Is this what you're talking about?
    Agricultural auction?
    Wherever they sell used farm equipment?

    I'm thinking house trailer axels. In my area many people live in trailers and they set them up on concrete blocks and remove the 2 or 3 axels so everybody's junkpile has an axel or 2 in it.
    Check the List of Craig and junk or scrap yards.
