These Chicken Tractor Plans are Inspired by Joel Salatins Pastured Poultry Coop. These 6x10 Chicken Coop Designs, are for raising fast growing chickens for homestead meat production.
You can raise 25 to 30 chickens in this coop. for homestead meat production. You can raise 25 to 30 chickens in this coop to market size, comfortably. It is perfect for someone with a small piece of property to raise their own meat. Your Chickens will have plenty of room to grow, and be in constant contact with the ground. It is best to move this tractor everyday so that the chickens have fresh clean ground to scratch.
Producing your own chicken meat in this way, gives you the best tasting chicken you could possibly imagine. So much better than the flavorless chicken you can buy at the grocery store.
I first saw this Chicken Tractor, that Joel Salatin was using for his
pastured poultry I was impressed by it's simplicity of design, light
weight, and ease of use.
just had to build one myself, so I searched the internet for plans...
alas, I didn't find any that suited my needs. I was looking for a
smaller version. Joel said his tractor held 75 chickens up to
butcher. I didn't need anywhere near that many chickens at one time!
I was just raising chickens for our own family. I wanted to raise 2
batches of meat birds per year, 25 in each batch. So I set out to
design my own version, and after using this chicken coop for one
season.. I can tell you that I am very happy with this design.
It really is a brilliant design! It is low to the ground and wide, so it isn't easily lifted by the wind, even though it is light weight . That was my first concern with this Chicken Coop Design, but it held up through some very strong winds this year and didn't budge.
Even though it resists the wind, it is still light enough to move very easily. My 7 year old daughter can move this chicken tractor by herself! Be careful when you move the chicken coop though, you can easily catch a chicken foot under the back panel. It is best to have a helper, on the following side to clap their hands and keep the chickens moving.
