    I am getting into meat chickens and need a coop/tractor. Here's what I came up with for cheap. [​IMG]

    Got the orange netting and tent free off a job my dad was on. The tarp was free because I had a coupon. We have alot of Pvc pipe laying around from a another job. It's a 8×8 tent so 64 square feet and can hold 32 meat chickens if i did my math right. I my self will not put more then 25.

    As long as you weigh it down(wind/predators) and you have no predators----it should work!!

    I have had egg layyers for a while in the tents as a bigger run and had no predaters to worry about.
