    This is what my dad built for our meat chicken tractor. If you want more instructions, let me know, and I'll take better pictures.

    Thats pretty neat. I guess the handles attached to the wheels swing down and are held down by the hooks, right? That gives me an idea on how we're going to do our next tractor coop with the wheels we have. Your coop looks good so far![​IMG]

    The hooks can be moved up and down to change the height of the lift.

    I'm guessing with only 2 wheels that you still have to do some dragging???

    I put 4 wheels on mine and I kinda like it that way.

    Do you guys have problems with the tractor being moved unintentionally?? I noticed most designs have the wheels like this one, so they can be put up or down.

    There's no dragging, you just have to lift up the wheels a little bit.

    That's great. I haven't built my chicken tractor yet and was wondering how to put on the wheels. Thanks!
