When we decided to get chickens my husband and I thought we should start with 3 chicks. We are only allowed to have 6 hens where we live. We never owned chickens before so starting small was a good idea. (Now I wish I got all 6) After reading these forums, asking questions, and searching on BYC for answers to many more questions, we decided to build a chicken tractor. While my husband built it, I watched . This is what he decided to build. It ended up being so heavy that we decided to make it permanent and now he is going to build an extended run to it. This is the first time building anything like this and I am so proud of what he did.. Our chicks are named after Lord of the Rings characters so we thought Cluckleberry Ferry (named after Buckleberry Ferry from the first movie) was a good name for their home. The chicks are named Merry, Pippin, & Smeagol.
