What is a Chicken Tractor?
Chicken Tractors are mobile chicken coops, with built in wheels to allow them to be moved from location to location.
While locked in their coop to keep them safe from preditors, your chickens will eat the grass and leave their waste. Moving your tractor to another location provides a fresh patch of yard for your chickens and allows the previous location to regenerate - with the benefit of all that chicken manure!
Simply lever down the wheels on the side of your Chook Mate and engage the supplied trolley then drag your chicken tractor to its new home.

Your flat pack contains:
- All doors and panels
- Nuts, bolts and washers for assembly

- 2 x adjustable roosting bars

What Tools do I Need for Assembly and How Long Will it Take?
The Chook Mate Chicken Tractor comes with all tools and safety equipment required for assembly, you won't need anything else!
Assembly generally takes around an hour.
How do I get to the Eggs?
Your Chook Mate has a padbolted rear door to allow access to the roosting area and eggs.
Can I Move my Chicken Trator with the Chooks Still Inside?
We don't recommend doing so. When the wheels are lowered ready for moving, your chicken tractor will sit up off the ground and chickens can easily get caught or pinched beneath the frame.
Opening the front door and letting your chooks run through the day provides a perfect opportunity to move your coop to a new location without danger of injuring your flock.
