    I am building an Catawba chicken arc for three or four hens; what breeds do good in small tractors like this.
    Thanks

    Pretty much any bantams. I personally do not house large fowl in tractors.

    Surprisingly bantams lay a nice sized egg. My frizz lays egg with yolks as big as a grade a large from the store.

    Grade a small I guess but still nice for such a small bird.

    I've only seen them at a show once. They were gorgeous!! Don't know how their temperament compares to their large fowl counterpart though... [​IMG]
