Somerzby Chicken Tractor
We all know that chooks love to scratch and peck in the grass and it doesn’t take long before they need to move on to some fresh grass.
So what is a Chicken Tractor?
A chicken tractor, alternatively known as an ark, is essentially a mobile chicken coop. For most chicken tractors, the open floor and the addition of wheels are the only big differences from your average chicken coop.
What is the purpose of a chicken tractor?
The main purpose of a chicken tractor is to keep your chickens and their eggs safe from the elements and predators such as other birds or rodents, whilst also providing the chickens with the freedom to roam and experience a free-range lifestyle.
Many people use tractors as alternatives to freestanding coops or chicken runs as they provide you with flexibility and mobility, however, partnering a tractor with a coop or run is also popular as it provides your chickens with the opportunity to experience a free range lifestyle, whilst also having a secure base.
This is just one benefit of owning a chicken tractor.
