We just processed our first batch of chickens for the summer. This year we are doing about 300 birds. My husband built a chicken tractor like Joel Salatin’s last year.
We wanted to share with you the rough plans that my husband drew up in Visio to go with Joel Salatin’s Pastured Poultry Profits . The book describes how to build the chicken tractor in Chapter 10, The Pen, but in a paragraph form. My husband used that paragraph to draw up these plans.
You’ll need to read Pastured Poultry Profits to fully understand how to build it, but we’re hoping these plans will help you get a visual. These plans are not intended to replace Mr. Salatin’s awesome book!
(Use the plans in Visio if you would like to modify them yourself)
You’ll need this book to understand these plans:
