    I finally had to get the two Cornish X's out of their little tractor. They were bumping their heads on the top of the run. My kids and I started on this tractor this morning. It measures 4x8 feet and is A-frame in design. I used a rain gutter for the center cap and all the wood is recycled.

    Excellent job Redneck!! I need to build a couple of those, but so far all I have done is scounge up the wire and a bucket of wheels to make it mobile.

    That looks like a good setup. Is the bottom open though? Might not be safe from predators! Good Luck!

    Yes, the bottom is open. What's not in the picture is the electric fence I have around it. I just came in from putting it up.

    Nice coop, but don't forget the shade this summer.
