    Been doing a lot of research on a chicken tractor with a low budget. I decided on using pallets for my tractor. I know where a stack of pallets are that I'm sure I can have. I decided to tear the pallets down and use most of the wood. I noticed a few people use the whole pallet as a wall or floor, I plan on moving mine around the yard so I don't want it to be to heavy.

    My goal is to have pullets by January 1 so I better get busy. lol

    I'm ready, I want to pick those pallets up NOW. Lol.

    Made a trip to the farm ranch/feed store today to price some things and they had a few 3 week olds and I wanted some right then. Lol

    i talked to a guy that has some older pullets he is selling so I may go see him. This Sunday I will go to the animal section of the flea market and ask questions.

    Saturday I'm taking my girlfriend to a livestock auction, she has never been. Boy she is in for a treat lol. I better tie her hands to her side and tell her not to scratch her head or pick her nose. Lol
