New chick housing

I got the 6 half grown roosters into an old rabbit tractor so now we can move them around the yard. Then we divided the other 10 chicks into three cages -- two are converted guinea pig cages and the other is a medium animal kennel with bird netting on the inside. Now they can all peck and scratch at grass and dirt, which is what chickens are supposed to do.

The rabbit tractor takes two people to move but it covers a fairly large area so we can move it every other day or so. The other three cages I can move by myself, so I just move them around the yard to where ever the grass is getting high and let them have fun with that.

So far, it's working out pretty well and I'm happy with it. What do you think?
