The Chicken Tractor...

My husband has not yet built a chicken coop for our new chickens.  They live in a crate in the garage right now, but when the weather is fine, we take them out to this lovely chicken tractor!  I took this picture before it was completed.  Now, there are two small wheels on the back end, and a mechanism on each side to lift it slightly.  We move it onto a fresh patch of grass each day.  They love it!

The "tractor" is made with "hog panels", chicken wire, and covered with a tarp.  

The first time it rained, I was looking out the kitchen window and saw them... they were all clustered in the corner where the rain was blowing right in, looking out and up with fascination!  They are so funny.
