To make a long story short, I'll soon have to many chickens for the housing I have. I wasn't going to raise any replacement pullets for myself this year, but... ya'll know how that works. It is SO hard to say "No, thank you." to free one-month-old chicks. So now I have about 25-30 pullets, and am trying to figure out how to house them. They're gonna start laying in two or three months. Until then I have adequate space for them. But once they start laying, they'll need a lot more room, nest boxes, roosts, etc. So having figured out that the soonest I could have a new coop finished by would be in October (which is much too late), I looked into making a chicken tractor. After looking at all of the BYC chicken tractor pages, here are my questions so far: 1) How much space do you need per hen in the covered coop part? 2) And the run? 3) Could I make it big enough to house all of them? Or would I need to make two? I know one really big one would be heavy, but maybe I could move it around with the four-wheeler ("A.T.V."). Max width it could be is 8' though (to go through gates, etc.). Thanks!
