Tractor Measurements

Height: 25-inches (Note: If you want you can make these taller so you can also use them for turkeys.)

Length: 8-feet

Width: 8-feet

Door measurements: 44" x 44" (square door on the top of the tractor)

How Many Birds Fit?

We fit 25 broilers at a time fit nicely in each. I wouldn't recommend more than that, although you can of course house less.

Things You'll Need

The following are some of the things you will need for this project. Note: the exact amounts are not listed for some of them. You will need to draw out your plans based upon what you want, to figure out all exact amounts. 

Lots of Pictures :-)

Above: this simple handle made of rope & about 1.5'2' of PVC, makes it much easier to move the tractor. (It's a must!

Above 3 pictures: a 2x4 is screwed on an angle so that the door/lid has a resting place when it's closed. (In all four corners.)

Above: this tractor is easy to open from the top. 

Above: the door can be opened and rest on the plywood roof while you tend to chores inside (providing your chickens don't fly out! :-) ).

Hope all the pictures were helpful! Now one last thing. Here's a video just to give you even more angles on our chicken tractor.
