Do you need  quick and cheap way to keep chickens contained so they can clear out some weeds?  There are a lot of neat ideas out there, including the coolest chicken tractor you will ever see, but they’re all a little pricey. And a little time intensive.

Got eight garden stakes and a roll of chicken wire? Then you can set this up. It’s not “predator proof”, so don’t leave your chickens out there at night, but it will encourage them to stay in one place and do their duty of clearing out unwanted bugs and plants.

Oh, and you can reuse it.
