How to Build a Chicken Tractor


Having a small propriety shouldn’t be an impediment for raising chickens. The thing which should help you achieve the best results is a chicken tractor. Even though it sounds like an intricate machinery, the device is actually a mobile chicken coop. The solution works best with limited yard space, because it keeps your chickens in place without the complications of a permanent structure. Cleaning the area is also easy because of the movable parts. What makes this different from other tractors? It has a simple design and it’s made out of inexpensive and lightweight materials, so you can use it easily in your yard.
