Sons and Zipties

You can't have too many. Really!

I wanted a bigger space for my 'teenage' chickens to run around outside. I had been putting them out in a rabbit cage, but they couldn't get really good access to the ground due to the bottom of the cage.

My husband and I pondered a cheap, easy solution, and came up with a temporary chicken tractor design. Today, my sons Vik and Troubles assembled it.


When it was warm enough, we took them outside for their first real scratch session.



I baited the grass with some king mealworms. You gotta make the first time rewarding, right?


Grow and learn, Ladies, grow and learn. Thanks, Boys, for the makeshift tractor!
