    The easiest farm critter, we picked up 34 pullets, 10 strait run chicks and 5 broad breasted turkey poults yesterday, 49 birds.. Assorted breeds so it'll be a colorful bunch and still plan on a couple more breeds.. 2 weeks from now we'll pick up 40 Cornish x rock meat birds.. Anyone like plucking chickens, LOL.. We currently have 2 chicken tractors and the 1st I built is TOO heavy so I have plans on building another of the type for the meat birds, only a 2 foot high model made of 4" pvc.. The tractor for the laying hens is constructed different and I'll make minor mods on the next 2..It's not to heavy and pulls decent, tarp is buttoned up for winter, come spring it'll fold open more on the back side.. It's anchored with some rebar J rods so it won't blow away..Here's some pics..

    Looks good. My girls have recently started getting eggs laid by the chicks and ducklings they bought last fall. They'd bought a few adult chickens too so they've been getting a few eggs all along but they seem to have special pride in the eggs laid by chickens they raised.

    We have a 10 finger unit that goes in a drill, and a 1/2 hp drill for the plucking.. There's some nice units but too pricey for our budget, IIRC I have less than $60 between the drill and 10 finger plucker..
