chicken tractor

big_andy(9)April 13, 2010


Im new here, and was wandering if anyone had any good tips for me today.

My wife wants me to build a chicken tractor so I started to think and came up with an idea. I want to incorporate a couple of stables for small pigmys and also rabitts and of course chickens

This will not be a traditional "chicken tractor". It will be big and I'm not sure where to begin.

Can any one help?

I have seen rabbit hutches wit a pull out drawer below that they contain the pellets and raise red wigglers for worm castings.Rabbits are very heat sensitive so you do not want them out in the glaring sun. My ag agent/bunny 4 H leader puts frozen 2 litres of water in the pen for them to snuggle up to when the temps raise.
good luck
