    I've been wanting a chicken tractor but wanted one I could walk around in. I had a bunch of extra Electrical conduit and thought I would give it a shot. It's mainly a grow out pen so not much need for nesting boxes. I got the ideas for waterers and feeders on BYC. It's pretty lightweight but it didn't blow away with all the winds we had recently.

    I use a hand dolly to move it around.

    And this is Texas so of course it has dual wheels :)

    Thanks. I think you would need a little more insulation up there! [​IMG]
