Free range chickens, without having chickens running everywhere!
While chickens all over the property sounds like tons of fun, I have two dogs. The dogs would LOVE it. But it would not make for very happy chickens.
But I want my chickens to forage naturally and be able to eat grass and all the goodness in the ground.
The solution: Chicken tractor!! A moveable-chicken coup that allows us to have the chickens in a fenced off area. Once they’ve eaten up everything in that spot, we simply move the coup over and go again!
Check back later today and I’ll give you more details on how we made it and show you pictures on what ours ended up looking like!
