Tractors and Chickens

Recommended Posts

Below are a couple pics of my tractors. Had fun Sunday tilling the garden with the T-16 and picking up leaves with the 3112V. I swapped rear ends on the 3112V Saturday along with the BGB shaft, seems to be running pretty good now.

The little Craftsman lawn sweeper works pretty good!

Decided to get a few chickens this year. 6 hens and one rooster, they took over part of my garden.

The hen house.

Thanks for looking! Brian

Nice looking setup! I have a 3212H with a 36 inch tiller. Haven't used the tiller yet but I'm planning to as soon as I get the belt and pully bracket from my buddy I got the tractor from. He has one of those sweepers for it as well. I see the T16 still has the chains on? Do you need these when using the tiller? I see you didn't spend a lot on fence posts. Ha Ha :>) Fresh eggs are the best... My in-laws have chickens. Once you have tried farm fresh eggs you will never by store bought ones ever again. Best of luck with your farm and tractors...

Rick, Thanks! I just haven't got around to taking the chains off yet. I just got the T-16 this winter and threw the tiller on to test it. The fence posts are Ironwood I cut out of my woods. Very cheap indeed :D. With only 6 hens I have more then enough eggs, just gave a dozen away yesterday.

The chickens are a blast. Fun to watch and not very much maintenance. I would like to eventually have about 20 hens and get rid of the rooster, he is a little rough on the hens. The Sears sweeper does sort of resemble the Allis one. The leaf catcher looks almost identical. I will have to check out the tag on my sweeeper and see if it has Parker stamped on it anywhere. Thanks to everyone for looking....
