    We recently posted a video & how to info on our blog about our chicken tractor that we built for our 6 hens. You can find it at We’ve expanded our flock since then but still actively use our tractor in addition to our permanent chicken yard.

    Your first link the the Save our skills 180 tractor designs page is broken. The first part links back to this page and the second part gives an error.
