Orchard Chook Tractor

We tried out a new orchard chook tractor.

This one was inspired by Joel Salatin’s pastured poultry book. It is a bit smaller but can accommodate 20-30 birds comfortably. Designed to fit between the rows of apple trees in the orchard. I have tried to make it as light as possible, two people can easily lift it into position. One person can drag it, depending on the ground and grass.

It is a prototype of more if it proves secure and easy to manage :

  • a layer of aviary wire for better security
  • wheels for single handed moving

So far it has proved quite effective and keeping grass down, moving it each day.
