    Has any one else made one out of the pvc pipes? are they safe? If i end up getting any meat birds it would only be a few, so i am trying to get one thats safe, but cheap. What about tractors?
    Great pics everybody!

    Quote:I have a PVC tractor pretty much like the others shown, and I love it. It isn't predator proof- just ask the two dogs that got into my flock of Freedom Rangers and killed about half of the 11 week olds. But, no tractor can be predator PROOF. It was the first attack I've had in three years, and let's just say those dogs won't be back- so I don't anticipate future problems. PVC is very light and easy to move. I used a tarp as a shelter, but I don't recommend that. No matter how you pitch it or support it, the rain will find a low spot and weigh your coop down. My future PVC coops will be covered with the corrogated material that buckeyejerseygiants used.
