5x13 chicken tractor for 8 chickens


Chicken coop overview


The 5’x13’ ChickInn chicken tractor provides 65 sq. ft. of space inside the aviary, coop, and nesting box area. This is a great looking structure that features mobility, and it’s designed to hold up to eight chickens. Large wheels under the nesting box and sturdy wooden handle on the opposite end, make relocation a snap for one person to move. The open floor frame allows natural feeding and being portable makes soil fertilization in different locations possible. The ChickInn is a great starter chicken coop for those who live in urban areas or suburbs with soil deficiencies, and for those who also want fresh eggs. The coop has a set of cabinet-style doors that open into the coop, and the nesting box also has an access door. A window on the back provides fresh air, and the metal gable roof adds protection for the chickens and structure. The ChickInn is a fun and affordable DIY chicken tractor to build.

FAQs & Answers


1. Do I need a permit to build a chicken coop?

A: In most cases, local regulations stipulate buildings that are over 100sqft require a permit, chicken coops included. If your coop is under a 100sqft, chances are you don’t need one.

2. Can I legally have chickens in my backyard?

A: Most bylaws and regulations stipulate that where chickens are allowed, a required distance between your neighbor’s property line and the coop needs to be enacted.  

3. How much does it cost to build a chicken coop?

A: This depends on the type, style, and size of the chicken coop. For smaller coops 100sqft and under, you can expect to pay between $500 and $1000, and for larger coops 200sqft and more, you can expect to pay between $1500 to $4000.

4. Do I need to move my chicken tractor?

A: Chickens are known for leaving rich deposits of nitrogen and leaving them in one area for too long can actually contaminate the soil in that area and cause over-foraging. You should move your chicken tractor around to different locations and reap the benefits of a nice flowerbed or vegetable garden.

5. Are chicken tractors hard to build?

A: Chicken tractors are just another structure built with different construction techniques to minimize weight, so they can be easily moved about. Our extended version of our chicken tractor’s plans makes construction possible for anyone.
