Chicken Tractor number 2
My list of materials:
10 8' 2x2's Get the straightest ones you can even if you have to make the guy get down a fresh bundle
to pick through.
1 4' x 8' sheet of 1/4" plywood
2 26" x 8' sheets of corugated plastic (we were going to use salvaged tin, but didn't want sharp edges)
1 Box of 3" screws used about 1/2 box per chicken tractor.
6 1" lag eyes to use as hooks for bungee cords to hold top on.
1 Roll of poultry netting or chicken wire ( you could make a bunch of these from the same roll since
really only need about 15 feet)
I have looked through plans for chicken coops and chicken tractors online and this is my attempt at making this as cheap and simple as possible. The chickens seem to like it so far, but then again they like eating bugs so what do they know.
