    Does anyone have plans for a large size chicken tractor? I need one for about eight hens.

    Thanks,

    Mike:D

    You might try the library. I was surprised to find a book on coop building, with lots of plans, in our little local library.

    I just looked at lots of photos on here and the Internet and designed what I wanted. Different things work for different people and locations.
    Look through some posts or do a search for tractors. You will find a lot on here.
    Check out my BYC page and the M*A*S*H page I have.

    I don't have plans, exactly, but I will let you know that after three months of agonizing, doodling, and going broke on graph paper*, I choose to do my tractor-for-seven as a two-parter (coop on 4 wheels; lightweight attachable run). Just about anything else either weighed too much, or didn't have enough room for them all [​IMG]

    *Seriously, some of the sketches I did would put Da Vinci to shame [​IMG] But all of them were impractical in some way.
