A Grand Design : For Chickens!

image

Here’s our chicken tractor being built. Its ugly, but I vowed to make it out of stuff we had lying around at all costs.

It will have another 3 triangles that will clip or bolt to this coop, so they will have a nice big run. Should be easy enough for the 3 of us to move and I’m going to put in down in the orchard so the fruit trees can benefit from them.

Unfortunately we have no chickens as they all got eaten by foxes… or a fox. There’s only one girl left and she’s a bit lonely… we have her close to us when we can and shes always crouching down to be picked up. We are on the look out for more soon so are getting their new gaff sorted. Hopefully it will be more fox proof!
