I went on a little field trip the other day to visit with some friends who built a chicken tractor and got their first chicks. Six red Comets.
The view from their living room is typical of Vermont: Barns, green lush grass and small mountains.
Their home made chicken tractor reminds me of a Conestoga Wagon.
Complete with a covering to provide shade and some protection for the chicks.
This chicken tractor has wheels on the front with handles on the rear like a wheelbarrow and is easily moved to a new spot every day.
This chicken tractor will be featured in the Tour D'Coop this summer.
There will be 5 or 6 coops on the tour and a few chicken tractors. PLUS there will be lots of gardens to oogle over, various livestock species and other interesting details.
Have you ever gone on a Tour D'Coop ?
