    So I am hoping someone else might have seen this design and can send me the link or name of the company. It was a chicken tractor big enough for 20 to 25 birds. Had the nest boxes and roost poles already in the building. It was low to the ground with a floor. It also had small doors near the "people doors" on each side to lead into attachable chicken runs. Any help is greatly appreciated. We are looking for something pretty much ready made as we have a predator problem (probably raccoon) and a pesty hawk. The grandchildren have named the chickens and are heartbroken when their chicken is killed (so I am). We have 4 acres and let the girls free range for 2 years with no problems then last summer something killed 14 chickens and 9 guineas. We replaced and just recently lost 14 more to probably a raccoon. So looking to have something we can move around so they can forage. Thank you. Becky in Alexander, Arkansas

    Gandalfe, thanks for the links. We have to go with one of those but I agree I don't think they are big enough for all our chickens. We would certainly have to enlarge the run portion. The coop I saw was very substantial. It wasn't offered on Amazon or any other site like Amazon. It was on a private webpage. So sad I cannot find it now. Becky aka citygirlfarmer
