Looks very nice. I also really like the height, but it could be heavy to move. I've seen some people who have made retractable wheels that can easily be raised when the tractor is in place & lowered when it's time to move the tractor.

The wheels I have on it don't really raise the hieght much maybe a quartor inch just enough to move it but it seems to be functional and that's the most important part for me all said in done it might be like 7-8 feet tall I'm 6ft and can't really reach the top I also don't have to duck which is more then awesome

I like the size and function of your tractor. I would strongly recommend you replace the chicken wire with hardware cloth. We have major predators in Indiana that will easily tear through the chicken wire and wipe out all of your birds. Fox, raccoon, opossum, skunk, coyote, stray dogs and even weasel and mink can go right through it and decimate your breeders.

Looks good though!
