    I have a picture of mine on my BYC page. It's not pretty but it works. No wheels on it but we just pick it up from the top beam and move it when needed.

    I don't have a chicken tractor myself, but here's some tractors that sound like the type of thing you are looking for(from the coop pages, if you've seen them already, I apologize):

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=1642-tractor This one keeps three hens, it looks like, so it's probably about the size you want.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=16313-monicas-chicken-house Here's a nice one.

    Or, if you don't want an attached run, these two are nice: https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=10091-The_Nags_Head
