Shade/Rain Cover Not Shown
Thanks for stopping by Saturday, it was nice to take a break. I haven't attempted to put the coop together, but when I do, I'll take pics. I'm going to time the construction, also.

When I was growing up, my coops were "homemade" and, I'll be honest, they looked like something I built!! The advertised Eglus are nice looking and The Chicken Tractory has a price (that is) MUCH lower than others. When one builds something by hand, I doubt one can hardly count one's time and energy (and "smashed" fingers!! lol) spent in making the product. If I were to build an Eglu, it would not be an Eglu, it would be an UGLU!!
The First Trip Outside
By the afternoon I had three chickens installed on my lawn. They seem to be happy, but a little confused. This was their first trip out of the barn. I'm sure they like the fresh air and quiet.
I just wanted to thank you for your invention. It is nice to see some Yankee ingenuity. Just when I thought everything was made in China!
Thank you again,

Storm Damage Repaired
Nov. 2011 -- Geraldine called the other day to say her Happy Chicken Tractor took a direct hit from a large pine branch that snapped off and fell during our New England November "snowstorm of the century." The ridgepole was bent almost to the ground by the large limb.
She is in the neighborhood, so we went over to check out the damage. Thankfully, no chickens were in the tractor when the limb came down. So we removed the ridgepole and the top two corner brackets. They pop right out. We replaced the ridgepole and brackets in a few minutes and the chicken tractor is as good as new and ready for the birds. Problem solved.
A False Alarm
We made a different style one - Yours is more practical.
I love it. UPS delivered it
today, you shipped on Friday and by Tuesday it arrived. I started
putting it together at 5:20 pm, It is now 6:19 pm it is complete except
for half of the hardware cloth/wire and that would be finished had it
not started raining.
