The ‘Tractor’ model is ideal for no more than three chickens who need to live in the safety of the chicken run. The coop is on wheels, so one person can easily move it to fresh grazing patches.
The ‘Nkandla XL‘ model is a more economical option if mobility is not required.
This mobile coop is precisely like the ‘Nkandla XL’; the only difference is the added wheels that enable one person to push this coop to a different location. If your chickens can roam freely around in the garden, there is not necessarily a need to have the ‘Tractor’. However, it is the coop to own if your chickens are supposed to live permanently within a confined space. Chickens like to scratch around and pick off what they can. Moving the pen around prevents damage to the ground and gives the chickens a fresh patch to graze and fertilise.
Although up to six standard-sized chickens can sleep comfortably in the henhouse, confining many permanently in the ‘Tractor’ is not recommended. The chicken run does not offer enough space, and the ‘Tractor’ is ideal for two hens, perhaps three, for permanent occupation.
