Chicken Tractor Inspired Temporary Housing

Thanks to Paul Monachino for sending in his new chicken tractor inspired temporary housing:


"After a fox attack killed off my six chickens and rooster, I realized I had major reconstruction that I needed to do in my barn and chicken coop and run. Inspired by chicken tractors I had seen on line, I decided to temporarily house my new birds in my version of a tractor.


The chicken tractor was placed inside the sheep pasture (after checking with the local vet) as the pasture is protected by five electric wires, keeping out predators."

I love the portable chicken coop and pen! Joel Salatin recommends this as THE way to go. WE are gearing up for a country life and reading everything we can! Thanks so much for the info you offer here! :-)
