I'm looking for ideas on how to stop things digging into a chicken tractor. I built one last year with a wire mesh skirt to prevent digging, but its not very practical. Its hard to move it as I keep catching the wire and bending it. Also it takes a long time to unpeg it and then peg it all down again once moved. Alsi, where I have stood on the wire over and over again when putting in food/water I have damaged the wire and it needs replacing in sections after only 6 months. My friend doesn't have anything to prevent digging into her tractors and says its not a problem. But I'd worry about it. Also, my girls dig holes on the inside, sometimes right up to the edge, so that it there had been no mesh skirt the hole they had dug might have let things in. I've got a broody sitting on eggs, so I'm thinking I'll need some new housing for the chicks in a few months assuming she hatches them OK.
