Creative RECYCLED Chicken Tractor

Vermonters really do believe in Recycle, Reduce, Reuse, Re-purpose. Until you wear it out completely.

Here is a perfect example:

A manure spreader turned into a nifty chicken tractor.

It is moved around the large garden every day. After the garden is planted the chicken spreader will be moved to a field to fertilize it.

 This poop mobile has a floor made of wood and wire so the manure falls through directly onto the garden.

There is a 5 gallon water jug system for the birds.

And the nest box is on the backside.

Here are a few other recycled and reused vintage pieces of equipment.

If this vehicle pulls into my barnyard, my hens will jump right on the runningboards.

What kind of chicken tractor do you have ?

Got a favorite vintage vehicle ?


  1. Alas, no chicken tractor here. I'd love to, but the coyotes and bobcats would find a way to eat them all I'm sure.

  2. I love the chicken tractor. Very clever!!

  3. i've seen a lot of chicken tractors but never one like that!

  4. How cool! I was excited to see just what a chicken tractor was! Very fun C post.

  5. That is a pretty cool chicken tractor, very creative, and I LOVE those vintage cars! :)

  6. I've never seen (or heard) of a chicken spreader before. How neat! And the car is a winner too! {:-Deb

  7. The chicken spreader is such a clever idea...

    Mr. Jenny has a cute little Jeepster that is staying cool in our garage for the summer.

    Creative post for the letter "C"!
