    Please help,
    I want to turn a camper shell from a truck into a chicken tractor. I can't find it in my searches. I know I have seen it done before.
    Let me know if you have a website or anythong books even.
    I googled it already and can't find it.
    Thanks:(

    That is what I have, the fiberglass ones work great. In the winter they solarize in the sun keeps them warmer. I have put a blue tarp over it in the summer. It keeps the heat down. Make sure the windows open, when some of ours quit we just left it open and put a cover over it in the winter. Good luck. Susan

    Hello
    I built a chicken coop using a truck cap, way to heavy to be chicken tractor.
    Truck caps make OK chicken coops, not very pretty to look at or move.
    I will try to send some Pic's
