    How big does a tractor need to be if it is Not their primary run.
    It will be used a few hours a day to give them fresh ground.
    With 4 standard size chickens, what kinda space do I need for them to keep them happy and not fighting with each other.

    4 x 4 is a little small....for 4 standards. JMHO. I would try to make it at least 4 x 6 . Those extra 2 feet would be good. The bigger the better tho.
