Chickens Tractored! This was inspired by BirdsinBethel's tractor, but was heavily modified- made much heavier (2x4 framing on first level), larger (roof is a bit over 4x8 in area, footprint of run underneath is 4x10) and more waterproof (we had a 4+inch downpour last night and the upstairs was dry as a bone this morning). It's home to 9 Buff Orp pullets right now, debating whether to donate 1 to my dad...... they are supposed to get to 8+lbs apiece ..... might get crowded in winter..... it is a bit on the heavy side ..... but the wheel system gives a leverage advantage ..... and with the wheelbarrow wheels with greased axles I used, it is not to difficult to move 10 feet every morning....... I need to figure a way to raise the "handlebars" about 8 inches or so....... and a I need a ground level door to shoo the birds into when I want them back in after letting them out to free range ...... they are easy enough to pick up, but it would be a whole lot easier if they'd put themselves back in........ I also need to add 2 nest boxes on the forward end...... but I've got a couple of weeks to get that done yet, I think. Thoughts? My House! Let me Show You It........ Door propped open ...... note tiny baby Orps.... A shot showing the framing and layout.
