What exactly is the difference between a chicken coop and a chicken tractor, and which is better?
A chicken coop is a permanent structure with house and run. A tractor is a portable structure that lets you move the chickens to fresh grazing.
I think most of us think of a coop as a permanent fixed structure. Tractors are portable 'coops' which you moved around your yard/property to give them access to new grass on a regular basis.
PS oops someone beat me to it
Do the tractors have nests and roosts in them, or are they just like a run?
Yes they have everything in them - see this link for examples members of this forum have created
