MCU – Mobile Chicken Unit

A mobile chicken unit, also known as a chicken tractor, is a movable coop designed to house chickens.

A chicken tractor is a portable and movable chicken coop that is designed to be easily moved around a yard, garden, or pasture. It typically has an open bottom and is built on wheels or skids, allowing it to be moved easily from one location to another. Ours will have an open bottom and be built on a stock trailer platform.

The purpose of a chicken tractor is to provide a safe and secure environment for chickens to roam around and forage for food like nature intended; while protecting them from predators. It also allows the chickens to fertilize and till the soil in the area where it is placed, making it an excellent tool for us small-scale farmers and gardeners who want to incorporate poultry manure into their land management practices.

Chicken tractors can be made in various sizes and shapes, from small, mobile pens for a few birds to larger, multi-level structures that can house dozens of chickens. They can be built from a variety of materials, including wood, PVC, metal, and even an old stock trailer. Our tractor will be customized to suit the specific needs and requirements of our flock.

Stay tuned to see the progress of our chicken tractor or MCU!
