    I was seeing what was new on the local CL, and came across a very interesting chichen coop, to say the least. Driving by you would never even know it's a chicken coop, just an old JD tractor in the back yard.

    Decorative coop that has to be seen to be believed. Newly constructed to look like a real John Deere tractor but is actually a functioning chicken coop.approximate size is 9 feet long ., 6.5 feet wide and 7 ft tall. Holds approx 10 - 12 birds in a year round free range operation. The tractor itself has many details like a driver seat that is also a hen box and a " tool box " that opens to be a reach in hen box. Tractor is complete with a steering wheel , smoke stack and side view mirrors (non functioning) The tractor can be rolled around a yard with limitations. actual tractor tires were used in construction but do not hold air (just ornamental) The front grill opens and lowers as a ladder to let the hens in and out. The "engine compartment" is a small pen/run and could be used for chicks. This coop will look great in your backyard or on your hobby farm.

    I copied it, so if the ad gets deleted, it'll still be viewable here for reference, for thinking out side the coop (I mean box). I thought others on BYC might enjoy iy also.
