    I did read the meaties 101 post and would love to house them in a tractor. my question is. Do I need to coop them also or can I just house them in a tractor like the one in the 101 post? it has a roof so they can get out of the rain.

    No coop, just the tractor. If you notice, about 2/3 of the tractor is roofed. That gives them plenty of cover from rain and hot mid day sunlight.

    sweet. thanks, cause Ive been thinking about this all week.
    I really don't have the money for a coop right now, but I can handle a tractor.
