|This day-ranger for your flock is an easy-to-move, affordable "daycare" solution on wheels for ranging your backyard flock safely! It's a life saver for folks who can't let their flock free range, but want to offer them fresh pasture to keep them healthy and provide "free" food in the form of insects, grasses and weeds. The included tarp (not pictured) protects from the sun and rain, the roosting pole gives your birds a place to rest, and the attached waterer means you won't have to lug one around with you. (Just make sure to provide them feed!)
We haven't had a single complaint or issue with predators in the three years we've been selling this!
"Day Care for Chickens" is super lightweight, made of aluminum and vinyl-covered poultry netting, and with its handles and 8" wheels, it is a breeze to move. The tractor is 3-feet tall at the
ridgepole and has a 5' by 6' footprint (for up to 8 adult chickens, if moved daily) and comes to your house in one manageable 10" x 10" x 72" package. Total shipping weight is 35 lbs! No tools are required to assemble the frame or secure the netting panels.
When you don't need this product, it's easy to take apart and store. (We
recommend you keep the shipping box for easy storage, too.)
Predator Note: this is not a "permanent" coop, nor do we recommend you keep your flock in it overnight. It is for day-ranging only. If predators are a serious issue in your area, additional steps should be taken to protect your flock!
