Chicken Tractor

Ok first of all what's with the name - Chicken Tractor? Farms already have tractors. Could they not come up with a different name? We decided to just go with it anyway.

Chicken Tractor

I have seen chicken tractors made of wood and PVC and yes they are lighter but I like working with metal, I have lots of it and the tools to work it. Our chicken tractor is heavy but strong. We use a pickup to move it every day. We were told we would run over the chickens doing it this way but it only took a few days and the chickens figured out how it works. Now they get excited when they see the truck coming, they know they are moving to fresh ground and all gather in the middle.

Water is automatic from the tank on top and there is also a hanging feeder that moves with the unit. The nest boxes are at the back with a door so you can collect the eggs from outside.

You can see the path the chicken tractor took through the field. The chickens enjoy eating the grass, bugs and other things they find in the dirt, they fertilize the field as they go. Happy chickens lay lots of eggs. Our production rate was high during the time the chickens were in the tractor.
