This idea is absolutely brilliant! Please continue to post as your progress continues. I am fixated this year on working through ideas for 'in the row' and 'between the row' chicken tractors. Why should I weed and hoe if I can get smart enough to manage chickens who not only love to scratch and hoe, but eat the weeds in the process? So - I'm eagerly awaiting your next steps! Thanks so much for showing us your creative juice at work.
