 Enjoy A Functional, Convenient, And Durable Chicken Tractor

We care that you do not have to do more work than necessary. Because of this, we have designed our lightweight Egg Cart’n chicken tractors to be functional, convenient, and durable.

Its Functional

Our Classic Egg Cart’n is designed to help you feed and care for your birds. It is a chicken tractor for 8-10 chickens. Two doors in the front give access to the feeder and watering bucket (included in the kit) to keep your chickens alive. The included roost is perfect for your chickens to enjoy resting or taking a snooze. The chicken tractor is equipped with two nesting boxes for your chickens to lay eggs. In general, chickens will never use more than two nesting boxes. Which is why we have only installed two nesting boxes to make your job easier.

It’s Convenient

Everything about the Egg Cart’n Classic is designed for your convenience. You will find assembly easy with our detailed instructions and included hardware. Almost anyone can move the Classic with our EZ-lift wheel system. Collecting eggs does not take long, with the sliding door opening right into the nesting boxes. The daily move and the perforated flooring make your job of cleaning pretty simple. Residual droppings can be scraped out the front and scattered as fertilizer or added to your compost for an extra boost.

It’s Reliable

There’s no point in buying a chicken tractor that doesn’t protect your chickens and will break down after a year or two. Don’t worry; the Egg Cart’n Classic is designed to be durable and safe. Egg Cart’n chicken tractors are designed to keep predators away, but you’ve got to be proactive. Predators like to scout out their territory before attacking. If you follow the daily move, you can reduce the probability of animals digging underneath or attacking your birds. You can also raise the ramp at night to protect from night predators. Adding corrugated plastic skirting to your chicken tractor protects chickens in cold weather.

What customers are saying…

  • Hi!  Just wanted to let you know, my daughter, our chicks and I LOVE our tractor…You clearly thought of everything necessary to raise chickens when you designed the Egg Cart’n.  I’m completely satisfied with our purchase and highly recommend it

    Sue R

  • This purchase allowed me to have peace of mind that my new chicks were safe in the mobile coop from my existing older flock because they were separated all summer. I bought from Egg Cart’n because it looked like a quality-built coop that was easy

    Tammy F.

  • I have a small place 1.8 acres. I like to be able to rehome the chickens with the season and it is easier to keep them clean with close neighbors when you can move the house. The first one works great, so I bought the second one.  It is sturdy

    Daria A.

  • Using the Eggcartn chicken tractor was SO easy!!!! Easy to move, easy to hose out and safe for chickens!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does shipping take?

Shipping takes about four to seven business days for most locations.

Is the Egg Cart’n too heavy to move easily?

No. The Egg Cart’n is designed to be stress-free and lightweight for ease of transport. This is made possible because of the aluminum frames, making the Egg Cart’n lighter than it looks. The wheels also aid in this process by being big enough to roll over grass easily.

How often should the coop be moved?

We recommend the daily move for full-sized flocks of eight to ten chickens. However, the frequency of moving depends on how many chickens are in the tractor and the quality of the turf they are grazing. The more chickens there are per square foot, the more often the pen will need to be moved to prevent damage to the turf.

Is the Egg Cart’n predator-proof?

Nearly. It is predator-resistant, meaning it is resistant to predators, but it takes some proactivity on your part. The daily move and locking the chickens upstairs at night by raising the ramp makes it virtually impossible for small predators to attack the chickens. Snakes could be an issue in some locations, and bears could be an issue in others, but we have been well pleased with the predator protection the Egg Cart’n provides.

Isn’t the Egg Cart’n too small to hold 8-10 chickens comfortably?

Opinions on this matter vary, but we have seen ten or even twelve chickens thrive in an Egg Cart’n. The most important thing is that the chickens are happy and healthy. Since the Egg Cart’n has two levels, the chickens have well over 40 square feet to move around. Observing your hens is one of the best ways of knowing what is appropriate for your flock.
