  1. I commend you for growing your own veggies ! Wonderful job !
    I do not agree with the consumption of any animal products and do not view this as “sustainable”. I find the treatment of the chickens rather cruel…..the tiny coop….not much of a life, is it????

  2. Just want to say Thanks!!!! for you detailed vid on How To Build a Chicken Coop Tractor …..Im subbed!!!! =) You Go GardenGirltv …. You are showing others that its pretty easy to do….great work!!!

  3. @sin331 The poop is the fertilizer, check out my other vids on how to use this system.

  4. i use my hens for eggs but as long as the chickens had a good life then its a great idea. the factories really treat them bad sometimes. i got to attached to mine and i dont think i could ever kill something i raised. mine are kind of like part of my family now.

  5. rain doesn’t pool on top? it looks top could turn into a little 3/4″ deep mosquito haven. in your situation, i think a “coop” may be a more appropriate term. a “tractor” refers more to a movable unit allowing the chicks to eat primarily insects and grass/weeds, and moved up to twice daily so as not to noticeably damage the land. this does not really fit the bill for a tractor, but is a decent open-air summer coop. 🙂
    ps. what hardiness zone are you in?

  6. perfect video! I like your way of making a tractor.

  7. It’s a smooth transition from gardening to animal caging…

  8. Initially i thought you are building a tractor, but in the end i see a cage. 🙂

  9. I like your series of plants, gardening… I also enjoy this movie. Thank you for the hard work.

  10. Cool, it takes lots of effort to create this 22 minutes long video. Thumbz up for you.

  11. Easy to build. You do with a lots of passion!!! Very good!

  12. Love your videos 😛 You got a new fan, Patti 🙂

  13. Obviously, Patti so cute and sweet. A wonder girl in youtube. If I hadn’t knew her channel, I would be a terrible gardener 🙂

  14. at first I found a little strange, but after knowing how much work and effort you had put in the video, I think you are a great artist. Keep on doing 🙂 thanks a lot.

  15. I really like this talented and interesting woman. Every video from her is special!

  16. Thanks so much for sharing, Patti! I’m curious how many full grown chickens you put in an 8X4 tractor.
    Thanks again! Please keep sharing, this is important stuff!

  17. I love your gardening videos, but must admit I don’t like the tractor idea…. I’m not sure how happy those chickens are. I have 11 in 1/16 acre run and still think it’s not enough, once in a while I do open the gate and let them run free in my back yard (1/4 acre). They are so happy then! Dash with lightining speed to roam free. I don’t think they’d be happy in a tiny cage (my coop is 8’x5′). I’m getting ready to buy few acres of land, then chicks will be truly freerange and HAPPY.

  19. I just discovered your channel today and Im in love!!
    Your videos speak to me. I currently live in Houston and am plannning to move back to the country in Jamaica. I just had a coop built there It is 300sq ft. but I love your tractor idea. I can do this also. Keep em coming and If you are ever in Portland, Jamaica, look me up!!

  20. How many chickens can you keep in a tractor this size? I saw that you have rabbits in similar tractors. How many rabbits do you keep in one?
    Thanks so much for sharing

  24. Hello Patti. Just a tip.. If you pull that sleeve at the end of your drill bit over your screws, It will help you as it guides the screw straight in for you and you won’t keep coming back to the same screw Nice vids, getting chickens soon… Thanks.
