Features of the Egg Cart’n Classic

The sleek original design of the Classic gives you everything you need for a secure convenient backyard operation.

EZ-Lift System

EZ-lift system for easy movement—The Egg Cart’n Classic raises onto four wheels, latches in place, and rolls easily over grass. The EZ-lift system sets the Egg Cart’n apart from other chicken tractors of similar size. Foam-filled tires ensure you’ll never have a flat.

Ramp and Flooring

The ramp can be raised for protection from night predators, lowered for grazing access, and removed for cleaning. The perforated floor allows for easy cleanup.

Nest Boxes

The double nest box provides a convenient place for the chickens to lay their eggs, and for you to collect them. The round openings encourage the chickens not to spend unnecessary time there.

Collecting Eggs

Easily retrieve your eggs from nesting boxes through the sliding door.


The roost provides comfort and safety for your backyard chicken.

Feed & Water

The feeder and watering bucket hang conveniently from the dedicated hanging brackets.

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.

Contact Form

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.

Contact Form

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.

Contact Form

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.
