    Thank you..thank you. I was actually just trying out the picture post thingy. First time I have got it to work, with DH help though. He's such a sweetie. He designed and built the coop/tractor, and the wheel mechanisms to tote it around.

    Here are 3 more views of the tractor. It is still in process, and not set up for winter yet.

    They are SC Gamecocks is all I know. One of DH's coworkers told him of a guy had a bunch of wild free range chickens on his place. The man feeds them and waters them, but that is all. So, DH took up the bottom half of the tractor, left it there for a month, and the chicks got caught. They seem friendly and curious enough.
