Over the years I have read books and researched the internet about chickens and have come across some elaborate chicken coop plans. A couple of years ago I was introduced to what is referred to as a “chicken tractor”.
At first I had no idea why anyone would want to keep chickens in such as small space since I didn’t realize what the purpose of it was. After reading a little further I noted that several people utilize these “chicken tractors”.
Recently I sold a chicken through Craigslist and my now friend, Michelle, was the purchaser of this hen. During our conversations via email she emailed me some pictures of her chicken tractors and gave me permission to share them with you.
As you can see by the pictures, Michelle has her own little flock. Her husband built these chicken tractor coops for her and I quote her, “The coops are cool because I wheel them around the yard, so if I can’t let the birds out for whatever reason that day, they still have fresh grass to pick at. This way there are no totally bare spots that take grass forever to grow back.”
Perhaps a chicken tractor is for you.
