Moveable Breeding Chicken Tractors

Does anyone have any good chicken tractors to breed chickens in that they could tell me how to make or show me a picture of. I would like it to hold at least 6 chickens and one rooster.

Try a dog trailer. They are hardy, big enough and easy to move. You'll find them for sale on DoneDeal.

I just wondered if there were any ideas out there but I think I can make the pens I want within the Ä50 range.

I like to use materials like pallet wood and scrap wood that is lying around where possible and that cuts costs a lot.

A chicken tractor is a moveable chicken pen. It is nice because you can keep chickens penned up but still give them access to fresh grass.

Buy a book called "Poultry house construction" Mc Eoins stock it i think.
Loads of plans for movable and static coops in it.
