Homemade chicken tractor part V

chicken tractor plastic nettingIn
my last post, I showed how Mark
a large access door to the chicken tractor
.  Next step is to cover
the rest of the tractor.

Green plastic netting
is Mark’s new favorite material for covering
chicken tractors. It’s easier to cut and manage than traditional
poultry wire and we think it looks better. Small dry wall screws seem
to be the perfect
choice for attaching the larger corner sections of the netting to a
wooden surface.

The green plastic
material we used for this chicken tractor has an added advantage of
being a nice comfortable size for
each hen to poke her head through to access some goodies outside the
tractor.  Combine bugs with fresh water from an
automatic chicken waterer and you have happy hens!
