The Chicken Tractor is finished. Comprised of:
2 old aluminium screen doors; 1 aluminium flyscreen window; 10 metres of chicken wire; I old steel table forming the frame of the hen house; 1 old caterer's canola oil container for a nesting box; some plywood & packing crate pieces for walls and a trunk from a drought stricken japanese maple for a roost; a sliding door between the house and run and sections of fencing for the floor of the house. Eventually we'll get wheels on it and it will be easier to move about! The whole thing cost less than $60. The three girls: Dottie, Sarah-Myrtle and Ruby all love it! Thanks for all the advice and information from this site - it made the whole thing much easier!
