    Hi,

    I'm building a moveable coop and I'm having trouble figuring out how to do the wheels. We would like to be able to move it with a tractor or Gator. The coop will be made out of 2x4's and plywood, so it's going to be pretty heavy (the dimensions are 4' x 8' x 4'H). I'm not an expert builder, so I'd like something simple, easy and not very expensive (I know...I'm asking a lot).

    Can you provide any ideas, photos, or examples of a good wheel system. I'd also be open to having just two wheels and a hitch of some sort. If it can be made out of 2x4's that would be great. [​IMG]

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for the reply. I think I'm going to try to use some old wagon wheels or bicycle wheels. Hopefully, they will work!
