I have a chicken tractor. I like it and it is working. I am considering building a regular permenant coop. Chickens are not going anywhere, they are here to stay, as I and the kids enjoy them SO much! My tractor is large and I can't really move it myself....so I have to get my husband to help, which he does NOT enjoy. I am also considering investing in some more chickens as we are not getting enough eggs. So then my chicken tractor will be too small. I don't want to build a regular coop and then wish I had my tractor back. I will have to build my coop then sell my tractor to recoup the investment....I can't really keep both. So once I go for it I can't go back. Has anyone made the switch and been happy or disappointed? Edited to add...My chickens free range all day unless we are out of town. So the tractor is small to have them locked up in for a few days. I feel sorry for themwhen we go out of town and they are locked up in such a confined space. I also don't find myself moving the tractor much because they are never in it really unless they are sleeping. So it started me thinking a larger permenant coop may work better for me with a large attached pen that they only use when we are out of town???
