    Hi guys!

    I've been stalking this forum for a number of months now as I start the process of building a coop for the chickens I don't have yet :D. Besides here, I have found about a million youtube videos about coops that will eventually be super helpful. This particular video is awesome and I thought I might share it because I've not seen anything else like it. She has actually built a 4x4 tractor coop for cornish game hens that she rotates over all of her 4x4 raised vegetable beds in her urban garden. That way the garden bed is composted and fertilized with no effort at all! The tractor fits perfectly flush on the beds. It's pretty genius, IMO, but be warned that the video is pretty long and detailed, but if you fast forward through it, you can see the finished product at around 19:50.

    Anywho, I wondered if anybody else had tried this method of gardening? If not, maybe you should!
