    I'm wanting to make a simple to build chicken tractor that I can easily move. We're going to be building the Garden Coop:

    But, I still want something simple to drag around different areas of the yard. I like the A-frame ones, but would like to see what other kinds some of you may have.

    Very nice! I have a tractor that is a converted rabbit hutch. I also use it as a brooder and a jail. There are pictures on my BYC Page.

    I am building a Banty Tractor right now. Go to search (or I just updated with pics today, may be one 1st or 2nd page, and you can see it taking shape. It is 8x3, with the coop part being 4x3. It's big enought for I think 4-6 bantams. I love the tractor idea. Works great when you rent [​IMG]

    You could easily make the look of mine into something that is 12x6 or what ever to fit a lot of standards, but you may want to add wheels. Mine is make of 2x2's and is light enough to move, but I have light weight corrugated roof, wire floor and thinner plywood (not osb then plywood)

    I added rotating trailer jack wheels to make mine easier to use. They are $18 at Northern Tool.
