    My Dad & I built this in about 5 hours.
    It's for my nephew who's parents finally said he could have some chickens.
    I spent a total of $4.97. The rest was scraps from other projects.


    I plan on making him a feeder that is covered so the feed doesn't get wet.


    These are a pair of sebrights I picked up at a traders fair last weekend for him. They were a surprise.

    Nice little tractor!
  3. ADORABLE! The only thing I would change is using some hardware cloth OVER the chicken wire to keep preds out... Chicken wire is designed to keep chickens IN, not predators OUT.

    Looks lovely though! How does he like his new Seabrights?

    I love it, colorful also...I would also tarp off or just put partial cover so they can get out of the sun...and heat

    Thanks everyone.

    PineBurrowPeeps I agree but this was a budget build & hardware cloth was just to expensive & I had the chicken wire.

    CoyoteMagic No it's not rebar it's hog panels welded together. But rebar might work just more welding.
