    Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm looking for a coop with a door on a trac that pulls up on a string/rope? I know that somewhere is a cute white tractor and can't find it for the life of me! But certainly any pics would be great!

    The "cute white tractor" is PatandChickens, I believe.
    If you hit the 'coop designs' at the top of the page, you'll see her "cute white tractor" on the page. [​IMG]
    Pat snapped a great photograph of the door and how it works.

    Check out GopherBoys coop thread. He has one like you are describing.

    Here is the sliding door I made, I dadoed the track out on my tablesaw and screwed the track on the coop first and then measured what size the door needed to be, right now we just slide the door up and down with our hand and hook it up, but when I get the run made I will put a pulley up top and a string on the outside of the run so we can open and close the door from outside the run.
