So in my defense I made this completely from salvaged materials and all I had was a blurry pic printed off the internet to decipher how to build this.
It's a copy of Joel Salatin's chicken tractor. 10 ft X 12 ft and should accommodate 90 chickens. He uses 1 X 3 lumber to build his to keep the weight down. His still weighs between 150-200 lbs. I used 2 X 4 lumber so this puppy has some heft to it. Be guaranteed that nothing is getting in or out and we don't have to worry about the wind blowing it over.
Here is the frame that I put together. I had to brace it due to the lengths making the wood flimsy.
Here's a pic of a joint so you can see how I fastened them together.
And here's the finished product. I was so intent on finishing this today I didn't really get that many pictures. I used the tin roofing to help keep the weight down but keep the security up.
Like I said it's rough looking but it was free!
Well there's the finished product. Now to get it into the field and get some chickens in it!
