Chicken ark conversion

Last year I struggled a bit when it was time to catch a chicken for processing. The coop was 10 feet long and about 5 feet wide, which gave them plenty of room to scurry away from me.

This year we decided to convert one of our old chicken tractors into a holding coop in an attempt to make it easier on me and the chickens.

The white barrier wall is made from a couple of chicken feed sacks turned inside out. It's a very sturdy material that's easy to work with at a price that's hard to beat.
