    Wanted to share pictures of my New chicken Tractor, grow up pen.
    We started off using recycled material we had around the house. What we ended up using what was left of a rabbit hutch we had.

    this is an area that Hubby built for them to get out of the rain, sun and to sleep in . they love it in there.

    this is the front of the Tractor door is on the right side with hard wire cloth. I still need to get a handle on it but for now I am using a screw and some wire to keep it shut. its a tight door.
