    Okay I need pictures of everyones tractor, I think I have convinced my DH to build me one but he has no idea of what I am talking about to get an idea. I am not wanting to spend alot on it but want it to look nice. I figured I can use the girls to weed my garden before planting it. Please let me see your designs!!!

    Here's some pictures of our chicken tractor. I've not added the wheels to it yet for it to be mobile. I also will need to add hardware cloth around the run to make it more predator proof. Hope this helps.

    its not the whole thing with the run, but the demensions are as followed, the house part is 4x4 square, and the run is 4 foot high, 4 foot high, and 8 foot long. check out my little update on this page to see more details.

    Patti Moreno teaches you how to build a chicken tractor really simply

    Can you tell me how you find the flat tarp roof? I saw how she made hers and always wondered if there was a drainage issue with water pooling on top after rain?

    thanks
