    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Here are some photos of alot of work and money and time that I have dedicated to my chics. LOL! My wife is getting jealous. If anyone needs help in planning on either project let me know. I will try to help the best I can. I think the bitties like the miniature Daschund in the photo. They walk right up to him.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Well I finally got the tractor finished enough to put some of the older chics outside. I can't wait until morning to let them out. [​IMG]

    Cool tractor! Great job. How many chickens can that baby hold?

    I am not sure. Right now there are 14 in there. The inside is 4' by 5'. The outside is 5' by 10'. When the ones in there get bigger, I might have to remove some. [​IMG]

    That looks great, but I fell inlove with the little dashhound ( we call it a Teckel) [​IMG]. My mom has one to a longhair normal standaard. Lovely dogs!

    And I also like the brooder man that thing is huge!!

    Great job and good design !

    Just remember that chicken wire is to hold chickens in, but doesn't keep predators out. A racoon, dog, coyote, etc. can tear through chicken wire. Can you reinforce the outside with welded wire ? There can also be a problem with animals digging under and into the tractor if not protected.

    Your babies are adorable (so is the dog).

    Wow!!! Good job!! I have to get busy on my own! Love the dog. My Aunt had a Dacshund named Belle, and when she would get ticked at you she would sit under the coffetable and glare at you. You did'nt need to speak "dog" to understand what she was thinking of you!!!
