    I'm thinking of building a permanent coop now instead of keeping the chickens in a tractor. But I would still like them to be in the tractor during the day to have access to different parts of the fields on different days yet still be protected. So what would be the easiest way to move the chickens from the coop to the tractor in the morning and back again at night. Would I have to carry them all?

    Shake the food can, get them used to the sound, and they will come running!
