Making a chicken tractor in your backyard is way easier than you thought! In fact a chicken tractor is the simplest of all the chicken coops to construct. However you will need a good set of chicken tractor plans and also the materials which in this case are just some lumber and chicken wire to get started. After you have procured these 2 maybe 3 hours all you will need to make your tractor. However there are still there are some things that you will need to keep in mind so that your tractor comes out the way you want it.
First of all you will need to provide at least 4 square feet of space per chicken so that they may live comfortably.
Secondly you need to keep a waterer and feeder always filled up so that your birds do not go hungry or thirsty while being in the tractor.
Lastly once your tractor is done make sure that you keep shifting it to other parts of your backyard so that your chickens do not scratch away the top layer of the soil. A tractor is designed without a floor so that the chickens can reach the ground. This is done so that the chickens can dig for weed and pests which they feed on. This feature of the chicken tractor can alone save you hours of work.
A tractor can offer more advantages such as protection from predators and also to a degree the weather and being so small and light it will not be hard to manage either.
