    I am currently building a Amish style chicken coop on wheels, I will post some pictures shortly.
    I have one question for the group... I want to put an attachment, link ..etc. on the coop from so I can attach
    my tractor to the coop to pull it around the yard. I am looking for this piece of hardware that I can use, but am
    drawing a blank so far. Does anyone know where I can find or reccomend a part that will work for a chicken coop to
    tractor link ?

    Thanks,
    ZeKii

    I just use a rope and tie my coop to my ride on mower if i need to move it long distances. That isn't what you are after but it works.

    Actually built mine on an old jet ski trailer w/ 2" ball coupler. I drop it on the atv and drag to whereever. You should be able to rig a make shift "tongue" like on a farm wagon out of a short 2x4 or 4x4 w/ a couple pcs of flat stock metal on the end w/ a pin whole in them. (one on top, one on bottom.)
