I am totally new to caring for chickens. We have 8 acres so the obvious choice for us was a chicken tractor. I built one and it is extremely easy to move. I can jack it up and move it by myself in 10 minutes. The question I have is what do I do with the hens while I'm moving the coop. At first, I planned to do it during the day but the coop elevates quite a bit and I'm a little afraid one or all of them might escape or that I might run over one of them. My thought is that I will move the coop in the evening after I shut them up in the house. They will be drowsy and hopefully not too freaked out by the movement of the tractor. My property is quite level and the coop moves fairly smoothly.
