    I am trying to find a chicken tractor and I found one that is made of pvc pipe. I was wondering how you would attach a nesting box to it?

    Drill holes for screws.

    Would you just attach a wood on?

    I'd be careful drilling holes and driving screws into PVC...same goes with attaching a wooden nest, the weight could be a factor.

    First would need to know, what size diameter of PVC?
