    I would like to build a chicken tractor. I live on a hill so anybody have ideas for a chicken tractor that can be used on a hill.

    Thanks

    A thought is to build it sideways on the hill, and the side that is going down will have to be lower.
    [​IMG] Without pictures, I am not sure how to make myself clear. You will pull the tractor across the hill, not down or up it. That is what I am calling sideways.
    The side that is on the down side will have to have longer posts to keep the coop even. The posts, and one wheel (unless you are using 4 wheels, then it will be 2) will extend to whatever grade your hill is.
