How Chickens and Honey Bees Are the Same, Only Different, by Gail Damerow

Long before the Internet existed, people turned to renowned author, Gail Damerow's books and articles for chicken care guidance. Enter the Internet and no shortage of questionable chicken care "advice" and discerning readers still flock to to the time-tested reliability of Gail Damerow's writings for chicken care guidance. So, imagine my surprise to find an email from her in my inbox one day while writing my first book! Since then, we have become fast friends and I am honored to be able to call her a mentor. I have to admit, it's pretty nice to be able to pick up the phone to ask a question, to share ideas and collaborate on projects knowing there are few people on the planet as knowledgeable about chickens as she; and chickens aren't her only subject of expertise!

DIY Chicken Playpen Tractor featuring a Chicken Fountain GIVEAWAY!

There are times in every flock when one or more chicken needs to be kept physically separated from the others in the yard, in which cases, a lightweight chicken playpen tractor comes in handy to provide continued visibility to the flock while protecting the bird(s) from each other.  A playpen tractor is useful when new chickens are being integrated into an existing flock, when a bird bully needs to be removed for others' safety, when a minor injury requires being kept in protective custody, or when feather loss from over-mating or picking warrants being provided with a safe zone. It can also be used to confine growing chicks during a field trip in the yard on warm day. Such times do not include when birds are sick or in quarantine.
A playpen tractor is useful when new chickens are being integrated into an existing flock, when a bird bully needs to be removed for others' safety, when a minor injury requires being kept in protective custody, or when feather loss from over-mating or picking warrants being provided with a safe zone.
A playpen tractor is a temporary, daytime confinement facility located in the chicken yard. It is not predator-proof and is not intended to house chickens at night. It is spacious, lightweight and easy for one person to move alone without the added weight of wheels, but not so lightweight that it could blow over in the wind. The instructions for this playpen tractor are provided courtesy of Mr. Chicken Chick who built it at my request for three bantam Cochin teenagers being integrated into the flock. This was a figure-it-out-as-you-go project. (don't judge) A portion of the construction was filmed live on Facebook and can be seen HERE.
