    I need some ideas for wheels for a chicken tractor. What kind do you have on yours? Where did you find them?

    This is what my dh did. Wheels are from Northern Tool. Our tractor is about 200 pounds and moves easily. The front sits on 2 jacks. We move it almost every day.

    I used 18" rear lawn mower wheels, found for free at my town swap shop/transfer station.

    We used garden tractor wheels on ours.

    Mine might be a bit on the complicated side as they involved heavy duty wheels, round stock, angle iron, a welder and of course a few power and hand tools. the first set of wheels broke and fell apart, so what I ended up doing was an after thought. some of my best made plans have collapsed on me!

    Thanks for all the responses, I will check at Tractor Supply for wheel/tire combos like you have posted.
