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.

    Susan G.

  • We love being able to move the coop around, it cuts down on any smells, fertilizes our lawn, and the chickens get fresh grass every day or two. Even with a coop that drastically exceeds the EggCart’n wheel kits max weigh limit, I can still usually

  • I’m very pleased with my purchase.  It is well designed and was easy to set up.  I made my chicken tractor out of a 10×10 Chainlink dog pen and the eggcart’n works great with it!  It is very heavy duty and will travel over some fairly uneven

    John H

  • So, I built an A-frame chicken coupe for my wife. I found the plans online and in my typical fashion I overbuilt it. The plan was to be able to move it around the yard. It was way to heavy to move with just a dolly. I came across your product while

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you calculate shipping prices?

Customers pay the actual price of shipping which is calculated at checkout.

Contact Form

How often do you recommend cleaning the coop?

The Egg Cart’n includes a perforated floor that cuts down the number of times cleaning is needed. However, every month or two, you may need to scrape out residual droppings that have built up over time. It is also essential to clean and disinfect the tractor between flocks. You can easily do this with a hose and brush.

Contact Form

Does the Egg Cart’n work for any animals besides chickens?

Yes. People have used the Egg Cart’n for rabbits and puppies, and it would probably work for other small animals.

Contact Form

Is there danger of the wind tipping the Egg Cart’n over?

High winds could tip the Egg Cart’n over, but typical winds are not a problem. We live on the plains of Kansas, where there is plenty of wind, and we have had no issues with the wind causing damage to our Egg Cart’n.

What is the white material used for the panels, skirting, and doors?

We’ve specially-selected 10-millimeter corrugated plastic for a sturdy and lightweight material, including a UV inhibitor to retard breakdown in sunlight.
