UV-treated canvas cover
The included UV-treated canvas shade/rain cover provides some protection from the elements. Colors may vary on the cover! For spring and summer 2020, for instance, it will be orange.
Roosting pole included
When your flock is ready to roost, the included perch is just the ticket! the roost runs the full width of the tractor. If you're using this tractor for waterfowl, though, don't bother with the perch. They won't use it!
Feeder and Drinker included
There's no need to lug your feeder and waterer back and forth from the coop. Your purchase comes with an attached waterer and tray or jar feeder, so all you'll have to do is fill them up.
Easy to Break Down and Store
If you want to put away your Day Care for Chickens in winter, it's just as easy to take apart and store as it is to assemble. It's a good idea to 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!
