This Chicken Tractor Rolling Coop is a unique design that is great for rolling around your back yard. It’s rather large 12′ x 4′ x 4′ and it houses up to 6 chickens. It has a nice sized shaded run. The plans are complete with how to add the roost and the nesting box. There is easy access to the run (with opening windows). Part of the design explains how to close the hen house door from the back of the coop. All in all, this is just one of the more unique designs on the market. The plans take you step by step through the process. They come complete with a shopping list, cut list and detailed step-by-step instructions. The cost of wood and hardware to build this chicken tractor is under $200. The wheels can be expensive depending on what you buy and how many. The plans call for 12 lawn mower wheels but we’ve seen various combinations of wheels used.
This Chicken Tractor chicken coop is not light. It is 12′ long. Pushing by hand is certainly possible but it takes a little effort. We only bring it up because some people like to hook it up to their riding lawn mower to move it around and we thought that was a neat idea! Anyway, if you are looking for something unique, this is as unique as we have found!
