Homemade chicken tractor part IV

Chicken tractor door constructionIn
my last post, I showed how Mark made
roof of the chicken tractor
.  Next step is a door.

learned the hard way that it’s very handy to have a door in the chicken
tractor big enough to get a whole person inside.  Mark framed up
the door out of red cedar branches and covered it with green plastic
netting.  He added a board to the side of the tractor so that the
chickens would have room to stand up under even the shallowest part of
the door, then framed around the door and hinged it in place. 

he was at it, Mark cut a circle in a sheet of cardboard to make a handy
mount for our
automatic chicken waterer.  Stay tuned
for the next installment of our construction series.
