Under the cover of darkness, I moved the chickens to their new home. Surprisingly, our golden laced polish squawked very loudly as if acting like an alarm. Rare and shocking at night since chickens usually stay fairly relaxed and sedated when you remove them from their roost at night.
The new chicken tractor is a 7' circle in diameter, with 2 layers of rabbit fencing, followed by a layer of 1" chicken wire. On top is wider chicken wire with supports for moving this incredibly light weight tractor.
In case you are new to this blog, the tractor moves every 2 weeks to the next vegetable bed. When I move the tractor on the 1st, I will explain how this all works.
