When we needed a chicken tractor to raise pastured poultry we decided to build one.
Moving is done by simply raising the lift handle and pushing the coop to fresh pasture. As the handle is lifted the cable will push the wheels down and lift the other end off the ground.
The overall height at the peak of 48" makes for a sloped roof that sheds rain and snow* while maintaining a low profile to resist getting caught in high winds.
Constructed of 2” tubing and 1x2” wire, all galvanized, this coop is built to last and take the abuse of wind and weather. The cover is 10 oz. vinyl material and has a 10 year life expectancy. Ships "knocked down" on a pallet and assembly takes about 30 minutes.
The result is a commercial chicken coop that has proven to stand the test of using it year after year. And a chicken tractor that is easy to move and lightweight.
