to the right are two nests (35x35cm), at the back is the DIY feeder, the little bucket to the left is for crushed snail shells and coal dust (good for digestion and egg shell production) and the bigger bucket to the right is for water. The nest will be filled with hay and dry fern leaves (against pest)
I have made this feeder from 3 different buckets. The red lid is from a big bucket, medium bucket body and another lid from a small container which will close the hole on the feeder after filling it up with chicken food. The whole structure is fixed with wire and a screw.
the chicken wire was stapled to the timber
finished chicken tractor :)
Im still to paint the inside with chalk which is to prevent pests laying eggs in the walls. Im also to paint the outside, especially the legs which will be exposed to rain and snow.
I will buy 3 hens as soon as the weather gets warmer.
