Easy chicken coops and tractors

Well-ventilated chicken coopHave you built a chicken coop or tractor so simple that a new builder could recreate your masterpiece in a few hours?  I'm looking for some photos of easy to build chicken housing to include in the January ebook and in the paperback edition of Weekend Homesteader.

As an added incentive (beyond seeing your name in print), if I choose to use your photo, I'll send you a free 3 pack DIY chicken waterer kit with drill bit.  Then you can make a spare bucket waterer for your broody hen or to make sure your flock has plenty to drink during that holiday trip.  (If you'd rather, I'll send you a Walden Effect t-shirt instead.)

My book is all about easy and fun projects that a homesteader wannabe can slip into a weekend off, so the simpler your coop or tractor design is, the better.  On the other hand, I'm sure that some of my readers would love to spread their building wings, so don't hold back if you've built a chicken Taj Mahal.

Chicken tractor

If you have time, feel free to include a brief description of how and why you built your chicken tractor or coop.  Then email your photos (one per email please) with the legalese below to anna@kitenet.net:

This email shall constitute an agreement between you and Anna Hess for non-exclusive use of your photo and text in the book tentatively titled Weekend Homesteader.  Skyhorse Publishing will publish this book in 2012. You agree that you shall receive no compensation for your contribution.


I'm looking forward to seeing some beautiful coops and tractors!  (And thanks for bearing with my begging for pictures.)
