    When I ordered my 3 chicks and a pullet, a BO and 3 Jersey Giants, my DH built me the tractor that is the A frame, the floor is 4 by 8 feet. I have just realized that this is not big enough for them. So today I converted half the shed to a coop. I will have to sell the tractor, which was supposed to be a coop. Didn't tell DH that I might fill up the extra space! Karen

    Those extra constructions (hubby made our Chicken Teepee <chicken tractor w/o all the extras) come in SUPER handy. Right now I have 3 chicks who are in it until they are big enough for the Big Girls coop, and I've also used it in the past for new chickens. I agree, keep it! You'll find a use for it MWAHAHAHA


    Me too... 10 Big Girls, 3 babies, 2 new recruits, 2 sets of eggs on e-bay... and a hubby who originally only agreed to 2 [​IMG]

    I wouldn't sell the tractor! You might need it for new babies.

    I've been thinking of how I'm going to expand my run for next year to add more chickens.
