A picture of my chicken tractor has been included in the January edition of Weekend Homesteader by Anna Hess of the Walden Effect Blog. The ebook features a selection of projects that can be undertaken by any homesteader.
The well researched articles are written from the perspective of someone who has been there before. There is plenty of actionable advice in the articles. This edition features an article on building a chicken tractor or chicken coop to house your own flock of chickens. Something I can highly recommend.
Chicken Tractor Material List
To commemorate the inclusion of my chicken tractor in the Weekend Homesteader, I am making available a material list (bill of materials) for my chicken tractor. I have written this up from the perspective of someone that would have to buy all the material from the store in order to build a chicken tractor. The prices are current as of December, 2011 and are based on my local Farm and Fleet and Menards.
The chicken tractor material list is presented as a check list that can be printed out and taken shopping. This would allow the chicken tractor builder to make one trip to the store and be sure that they have everything needed to build a chicken tractor.
