My husband's vote is no.... I have a nice little chicken tractor for our 4 hens (our first flock). Honestly, they seem pretty content, and just started laying. But, winter approaches - and it's rainy, probably snowy... but generally milder in the PNW than back east. Also, I'm tired of moving it around the yard. The mature hens destroy the grass pretty quickly. I know it's going to be a mess once the weather changes. I'm thinking about making a more permanent winter structure and then maybe bringing the girls back out to yard/tractor for the summer months. Do hens mind this kind of seasonal moving? I'd love to benefit from your experience! Especially from those of you who have used chicken tractors and know their short-comings. Thanks all!
