No. While the name might bring forth images of chickens drag racing down South Lowry in souped up John Deere tractors you are wrong....but the image is a bit funny.
Chicken tractors are for people who have a small number of chickens. Instead of a fixed coop, they have a mobile coop. This allows you to move the chickens around and have them 'care' for other parts of your lawn.
This gallery of tractors at City Chicken shows the wide range of sizes and models for those interested...who do not live in the Brentwood clone town of Smyrna. It also shows the neat clean nature of backyard chickens that goes against the worst case scenario that town spoke of when I brought the issue in front of them last year.
They also have a page of laws that shows Tennessee is far behind the home movement to care for, and produce neighborly your own food. Nashville has a very sensible law.
Nashville, TN. Has an unlimited chicken law assuming “No person shall keep chickens within the metropolitan government area in such a manner that a nuisance is created” and are kept penned, no “fowl at large.”We should feel shame faced that the words "the Nashville government is more sensible then ours" has a chance to be said. I mean come on people! Nashville!
