My chicken tractor is going to be located right in my "front yard" (I live in a fourplex) that is near the road (not a busy one) next to our small garden. My property is fenced in and we do have a gate but since all of the tenants have different schedules the gate is left open and unlocked. A lot of people pass by our place walking to and from the University, home, to work, etc... I am a bit worried that someone may want to try and steal the plump little ladies that I hope my chicks will soon grow to be. Is there any way I can keep people out/away from the tractor? I'm considering putting padlocks on all the doors of the tractor and perhaps using those large ground staples you can get from hardware stores to fasten the tractor down (does not have a floor on it). At least that way if someone is trying to get in it will be obvious and hopefully someone will be around to say something or chase them away. Anyone have other suggestions or are familiar with this type of situation? A piece of me would die inside if one of them got stolen And I only have three to begin with anyway... would be heartbreaking.
