Stephen has wanted to get a chicken tractor for years. We talked about making one but just never got the chance to do it.

This week, we bought several chickens from some friends. Today, they brought us their chicken tractor since they’re no longer using it.

The whole idea of a chicken tractor is that it’s a bottomless pen that is moveable. We’ll be putting ours in the garden over the winter because the chickens do such a good job breaking up the soil.

For now though, they’re in the back yard. We’re really enjoying watching them, and the extra eggs are nice too.

  1. Just found your blog and have enjoyed reading some of your posts. I plan on poping in often 🙂
    Chickens are the best pets my children love our hens, they fight over who gets to collect the eggs (I ended up having to make a chart of egg collecting) and the hens are so friendly now they follow us around the yard and the girls love to carry them.

      The chickens are so fun to watch. There are too many stray dogs in our neighborhood to be able to let ours loose all the time. We are really liking having the chicken tractor so close to the house though – we can see the birds right out our window. 🙂
