New Chicken Tractor

Trackback Andy Lee and Pat Foreman coined the term “chicken tractor” in their popular books, one by that name and another called Day Range Poultry: Every Chicken Owner’s Guide to Grazing Gardens and Improving Pastures. The basic idea is to allow a chicken’s natural inclinations- to lay eggs, to eat bugs and grass in fresh air and sunshine, and put down fertilizer- work for the hobby farmer.

Typically, once a day the portable coops are moved their length to a new patch of salad. The chickens then convert insect pests and grass (along with the feed they are given) into meat and eggs while leaving their manure to boost new grass growth. Traditional farming calls for a henhouse, possibly with a small attached yard or completely loose birds.

Birds who lay well get to live out their days in tractors being brought delicious kitchen scraps, lay ration, and scratch grains while enjoying the great outdoors and shelter. Birds who don’t lay will go to the freezer. Chicken+Tractor+1b.JPG (1600×1200) 05-26-09 (640×480) Chicken_tractor.jpg (900×509) Tractor2012ss.jpg (400×266) Bob’s Super Coop Chicken Tractor.
