Nice job! I need one of those -- or two -- but for my layers. I have a few who do NOT want to coop and I'm wanting them out of the barn they are using!! At least I have a tractor that I can move it with. :D Trust me, this old gal would need that. I also have a pasture I'd like to have them "work" & fertilize for awhile. Hmmmm....

Where'd you get the "roof" braces?

Did you have a pipe bender, or make your own jig? I see that as being a great chicken tractor. BUT, you could replace that tarp with a greenhouse tarp and have an instant greenhouse. Given: In your climate, you don't have much need for a greenhouse... But, it would give you a year round garden. Nice job. How do you move it?

I use a hand bender like this https://www.googleadservices.com/pa...j3z4zGj57qAhUBpp4KHYsVDUUQwg96BQgJEJcB&adurl=



it has wheels on the back that are easily sliden on and off then I pull up on the rope and walk it forward. the whole thing weighs maybe 120 lbs so it's not hard to move

Was thinking along same lines. LOL. For that, some higher sides would give inside room for people. Run a shelf along each side. Done. :D Even a small one for starting plants could be easy. Guess I need to buy a bender.
