    DH has become obsessed with chicken tractor construction. He has built six so far which more than adequately houses all of our hens. He is going to build four more this spring because he thinks that he has perfected another design. I certainly don't object but we can only reasonably store so many before they just rot outside.

    What would you do with the extra tractors?

    I would make them the width between my garden rows and let the hens weed for me. Move them a bit each day. Ground worked and soil would be fertilized.I could start many kinds of chicks at a time with a broody hen and let her teach them to dig there. Jean

    I agree!! I plan to use mine (I only have one tractor) for the young birds I am getting this spring, and I already plan to space out the rows of my garden so the tractor will fit between.
