    Was a nice day today, by AZ standards. Only 98 degrees, woo Hoo! I decided to make a baby tractor to get my 16 meaties some sunshine and grass. I made a 2x8 tractor, 2 foot high and put the little 3 day olds out to enjoy the sunshine and long grass. They had quite the afternoon.
    Hope to be able to keep them out at night in a few more days, with a heat lamp, of course. For now, they'll come back in and sleep in the baby brooder.
    I figure this little tractor will get lots of use, especially if one of my Banties decides to help me with brooding next spring.

    Sounds good Tracy!

    The one I'm building is just a tad bigger than that square foot wise - 3 x 6 x just under 2' tall
