    Can you please show me pics or plans of your chicken tractor? I need to build one for about 4-5 bantams or 3 large fowl(NN's to be exact). Im looking to make it out of 1 X 1's, 1 X 2's, or 2 X 2's. Thanks in advance

    If you look at the Coop Design part of the website you can see small chicken coops and tractors and lots of pictures and such.

  4. I've been telling everyone this, but if you go to google and click on "images" and then search for "chicken arks" or "chicken tractors" you'll get AMPLE pictures to look at and get ideas from. Its how I built my new pen.

    This is mine right now i have rabbits in it.I riped 2by4rs down.Cut little pieces of 1/2 inch plywood to connect the ends so they wouldn't split.On the run end I had a old window frame for the door to get in.Then on the house end I am able to get in also.Didn't have hinges I used wire.Gocart wheels so it would be easy to move.All i had to buy was the wire I bought rabbit wire because it was pretty strong.My total cost was $10.Hope this helps.I'm getting ready to build two more as soon as I get the wheels.The person who has some are gone on vacation.So if anybody has a better idea please share
