Product description

To give a strong, quick start to your chicken-rearing passion, all you need is a chicken coop that can house all your birds and give them a healthy and safe environment. And as it turns out, you don’t need a large space to get started with chicken rearing. Small enough to fit in most yards, this 4×8 chicken tractor is a movable chicken home with everything you need to give your birds adequate and comfortable space to feed, roost, lay eggs, and roam.

The coop has two doors – one open to the aviary and the other to the hutch – making it easy to access the inside when cleaning. The included droppings pan holds the droppings overnight and whenever the chickens are relaxing on the roosts, which also helps ease cleanup. Holding dropping also helps keep the space under the hutch free from dropping, making it more hospitable.

The cage is raised to 1′ above the ground, leaving a shaded area within the aviary where your birds can take refuge from the rain and the afternoon sun. This space also extends the aviary, providing your birds with adequate space to roam during the day.

For your laying girls, there is a protruding nesting box with compartments enough for the entire flock. The roof over the nesting boxes is flexible and can be easily flipped for easy cleaning and hassle-free egg harvesting.

Two large wheels are affixed under the nesting boxes, making this chicken coop genuinely mobile. You can always move your coop as you wish. The wheel also makes it shift with your coop if you move to a new residence.
