A chicken tractor is another name for a movable chicken coop. When some people hear this terminology they immediately wonder if there is an actual tractor involved or perhaps if the chickens actually pull the coop around the yard. Here is the essential information you need to know about chicken tractors.
No machinery or super strong chickens involved
A chicken tractor is basically a chicken coop that is mobile, that can be moved into different areas of your backyard, whereby the chickens graze down your grass and work over your soil, so it seems that a tractor must have gone past and slashed your weeds and ploughed your soil. Chickens love eating weeds, grass, bugs and scratching around and therefore will love you all the more if you can regularly give them a new patch of soil to work over.
Wheels for Mobility
Even though chicken tractors often have wheels, the owner still needs to be the one to move the coop. Of course, chickens are not strong enough push your coop to a new area, no matter how wonderful they are! No super-strength chickens here.
Chicken Tractors are great for Permaculture
Permaculture is all about the development of ecosystems to make land sustainable and self-sufficient. Those familiar with permaculture will know the wonderful benefits that chickens bring in transforming a backyard into a self-sufficient space. Not only do chickens provide eggs but they eat weeds and bugs and fertilize the soil, making it even more fertile than it was before.
