    That's awesome. I grew up raising chickens and we never had anything cool like that.

    Now, are the chickens going to be pulling that tractor?

    ;)


    I do miss land and being able to have chickens. Home grown chicken is SOOOO much tastier than stuff at the supermarket.

    That's a good looking chicken tractor Tx. Have you read any of Joel Salatin's books?

    That looks cool, I have a buddy that has chickens but he doesn't get online... We do get unprocessed eggs though from him and if I had time and lived out where I could raise them I would.

    Chickens are nice to have around. Used to raise them when I was younger, always had eggs that tasted so good.

    Nice Pen Build, coming along real good.

    I haven't. We raised in a real urban setting with a basic store bought coop then moved to rural land so I decided to expand, I saw a couple photos of a real basic small chicken tractor so in my Tim the Toolman Taylor voice of "more power" I built this heavy thing.

    Looks good Tx! My wife wants chickens, but I know who would be doing all the work!

    <-- This guy!

    So, we will at least wait until we get out of our neighborhood. ;)

    I told my wife that if we move to some land I'm raising chickens. She thinks I'm kidding.
