I realize that none of those words belong together, but I have a major emergency on my hands. I just resigned from my job, which means I will have to move out of the current housing in the next week with my two horses, German Shepard, 15 hens, 2 roosters, and about 15 chicks of assorted ages (all who still need to be in a brooder). It also means that my current cashflow is about -1,500 for the month. I'll be moving in with family, for now, who have space for the horses and a warm bed for me and the pup. However, there are no accomedations for the chickens. At all. In the middle of 30* F raining, nasty weather. There are two areas that may work as a coop, but neither has a space attached that could act as a run and they cannot be free-ranged as they are at our current home, due to dogs and the fact that we have to drive directly through the yard to get to the house. Since I have two roosters, a blue mottled Orpington and a Cream Legbar, I will have to have two seperate areas as these two roosters will fight each other and my Legbar will lose. At this point I think my best bet, for the large birds, is to build two tractors and split the hens between them. I just hate having to keep them confined to such a small space as up until now they've been free-ranged on over 15 acres with all the bugs their little hearts could ever desire. Does anyone have any ideas for building (2) tractors that are safe, warm, and potentially spacious enough for my birds to be comfortable, and will cost as little as possible? Also what's my best, affordable bet for an inexpensive brooder that will work for my teenagers and my brand new (born Saturday) babies?
