chicken tractor

Building a chicken tractor. The short and sweet version.

Build a 2" X 4" base that is 12' long X 8' wide.

Cattle panels attach to one side (hammer on U-shaped fasteners) and then bend over and attach to the other side. There are three panels used in this design, each 4' wide.

The extra cattle panel pieces are used to fashion end walls.

One end wall gets an access door. The entire chicken tractor gets covered in poultry mesh and all the connections are fastened with wire.


A tarp is added for sun/rain protection. The nesting box is attached. A rod is added for roosting and feeder and waterer are hung near the door and under the tarp.

Add chickens (these get to regularly wander outside on nice days).

Aside from the lower cost, an advantage of Hogan Shoes 2011ordering identical baby suits in 3 distinct sizes is that your little one gets to wear the outfit for up to twelve months whereas usually outfits would only last 3 months due to baby growth rates.Hogan Shoes 2011 Buying in packs of three saves you the inconvenience of searching for baby clothes all the time
