Post Chicken Tractor Design
Has anyone developed a good chicken tractor design? I'm looking to make one. Cannot be timber (we have lots of termites).
Thanks
Crinia

Once i have my welding skills sorted i was planning on using an old trailer to use as a base and build it up from there. That way its read made to tow around the paddock. There are a few sites online that have some plans if you look around but i was just going to try from scratch and see what happened.

PVC piping is also an option for smaller ones as you can get all the necessary fittings to do the corners easily.
