There are several ways to house backyard chickens, but all these options have their own advantages and disadvantages.
If you are (or you’re planning on) raising chickens and you have a relatively small backyard, a chicken tractor might be best suited for you.
A chicken tractor is basically a movable chicken coop. It’s a good kind of housing for a limited space since chances are you would need to use your backyard for many other purposes from time to time.
And if you can only provide a small house for your chickens, the area will be easily filled with poop and mud. With a chicken tractor cleaning the area is easier!
This beautiful chicken tractor is made with inexpensive and lightweight materials. It has a very simple design and is easy to use as it is not as heavy as other chicken tractors.
