    So this Monday we had a hawk attack. We recently fenced in our yard and we let our chickens free range during the day when my husband is home. When my husband leaves he usually puts them in their coop;/run. Well on that day he forgot. He came home to one of my hens being attacked by a hawk and the rest were gone. Well we were lucky during the course of the day all the chickens came back to their coop. They went so far into the woods to hide. Smart chickens. We have a lot of bushes and brush for them to hide in.

    Well now we are going to make some sort of grazing pen that can be moved daily (chicken tractor). Does anyone have a the plans for a movable PVC chicken tractor?


    Well if you can help me it would be greatly appreciated
