    Hi, I want to build a coop for free range laying chickens, but I want to have a backup in case there ends up being to many predators in the area so i was planning to build a chicken tractor, but i was unable to find any plans that showed any details on size or number of chickens it would hold I am interested in raising about a dozen chickens. I was also wondering what kind of chickens would be best suited for me living in Northeastern Connecticut.

    Can't help you with coop plans, but I'm sure someone will be along soon. Good luck.

    Do you have a lot of yotes in your area? If so you might have problems free ranging them unless you make the run mobile as well.
