    just had to show off my new chicken trailer. I'll use the cage alone as a chicken tractor as we need it. I'm pretty proud of this, as I built it mostly by myself. My DH put the wire on.

    Very ingenious! [​IMG] They could even go on vacation with you now! SO, for those of you who have separation anxiety from your chickens while on vacation, a solution has been found! [​IMG]

    Great job on your chicken tractor! [​IMG]

    They seemed fine when we got there. Sure did get some strange looks going down the road. Seemed to deter the tailgaters too! [​IMG]

    Yep, I'll put it right on the ground. Not sure what I'll use for a shelter yet. Next project!
