A chicken tractor is a bottomless, portable shelter-pen that fits over your garden beds. The chickens peck and scratch the soil, eat pest bugs and weed seeds, and fertilize the beds with their manure. Best of all, they provide eggs and meat.
"Andy Lee explains the entire range of possibilities for this practical style of garden and poultry management, from just a few chickens in the garden to commercial flocks rotating through farm fields."
