Need to design a bantam Chicken tractor.. Help please =D

  1. I need to design a chicken tractor for 10 bantams. I need it portable, and light, and able to hold 10 milles fleur d'uncle bantams. I need it always available to the outdoors, so they can get out right as the sun rises. Any Ideas?[​IMG]

    I use this type of setup.

    It's a 5'x5'x2' modular system that's made from 2"x4"x60" 12.5 gauge galvanized welded wire fencing. A 100' roll makes a 250 sq. ft. of usable space. Each section butts up again the next section to make a coop and run 25' long. My chickens come and go out of the coop as they wish. More pictures in my default photo album.

    Thanks guys. The runs are easy to make. Wire cutters, zip ties, and some hog rings. Takes about 45 minutes to put together. The coop takes considerably longer to construct.
