Chickens love to roam about and dig and scratch. As an owner, you would love to allow them to do this, but you also want to keep them safe from predators. With the daily move, our Egg Cart’n Chalet chicken tractor allows your chickens to have variety in eating without the threat of predators. Following the daily move reduces the probability of animals digging underneath and attacking your birds. You can raise the ramp at night to cut down the possibility of predators.

Your Convenience

To care well for your chickens, you need housing for them that is also convenient for you. Everything about the Chalet Egg Cart’n is easy. Assembly is made simple with our detailed instructions and included hardware. It is easy to move with our EZ-lift wheel system. A sliding door opening into the nest makes egg retrieval easy, and the perforated floor on the second floor makes cleaning simple.

EZ-lift System

The EZ-lift system sets the Egg Cart’n apart from other chicken tractors of similar size. All wheels are raised and locked into place by pushing down on the tongue.

Ramp and Flooring

The ramp can be raised for protection from night predators, lowered for grazing access, and removed for cleaning. There is 1″ perforated flooring made of polypropylene with 3/4″ openings which aid in easy cleaning.

Nest Boxes

The double nest box is sufficient for the needs of the chickens. Generally, chickens only use two nest boxes in any given situation. The openings are round so they will not spend unnecessary time in there

Collecting Eggs

Collecting Eggs is easy with a sliding door leading right into the nest boxes. You shouldn’t have to worry about your chickens slowing down the egg retrieval process.


We have saved space in the chalet by placing the roost in the roof. the slanted roof leaves plenty of room above the roost for your chickens to rest comfortably.

Feed & Water

For your ease of use we have included the feeder, watering bucket, and hanging brackets in the kit so you can begin your journey in chicken farming as soon as possible.

Sliding Gate*

The sliding gate on the Chalet allows the chickens to have free range during the day. You can leave it open during the day and close it at night to keep your chickens safe.

Weather Skirting

The skirting used to protect your chickens from harsh weather is made from quality corrugated plastic. We want your chickens to be safe.

Flower Box

Choose your personal favorite flowers and add them to the Chalet to add the finishing touch to your stylish chicken tractor.

* Please Note: The sliding gate is now positioned on the end instead of the side of the Chalet. This placement was preferred by our customers and allows for attaching an optional chicken run behind the unit. Updated product photography is pending.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have You Considered Using Other Materials Besides Wood for the Floor Joists?

Yes, but we feel that the cost of parts and labor for other materials (steel or plastic) does not justify the added cost. Wood is solid and durable, and wood floor joists should hold up well for many years.

Where Do You Put a Feeder and Watering Bucket?

The Egg Cart’n is ingeniously designed to make watering and feeding convenient and stress-free. The Egg Cart’n includes two brackets on the ceiling —one for hanging the included feeder and the other for hanging the included watering bucket.

What Kind of Bedding Do You Recommend for the Nest Boxes?

Straw or grass clippings work well. Floor dry, a product that mechanics use to clean up oil spills, also works well. It is a natural product made of dried clay and can be found at any auto parts store. It helps dry up moisture, and its texture deters chickens from playing in it as much as they would in straw.

Is the Egg Cart’n Suitable in Any Climate?

The Egg Cart’n is designed to be suitable in virtually any climate. Chickens can survive heat if they have enough water and ventilation. However, if you live in a cold climate, you will need to be more proactive. With all the panels installed, chickens should be fine in below-freezing temperatures. It can help to move the Egg Cart’n behind a windbreak if it is frigid and windy. In freezing northern climates, the pen may need to be moved into a shed or garage during the coldest part of the winter.

Are Two Nests Enough for 8-10 Chickens?

Yes. In general, chickens will never use more than two holes in any situation. Chickens like to lay their eggs where other chickens have laid their eggs. It is common for hens to lay most of their eggs in one nest even when they have the option of using two nests. Sometimes the chickens lay all their eggs in one nest and leave the other untouched.
