We've been playing with the concept of a chicken tractor set up for our pigs. In the past, we've been moving a playpen of sorts for them to work specific areas during the day, moving it every couple of weeks (their home etc is permanent, but we let them play elsewhere during the day). We wanted something secure, but light enough for us to simply pull or for them to move via rooting, without escaping. It's only about 8x10 but so far so good...for all.

Move by rooting but not escaping would be perfection!

 
Don't count your weasels before they've popped. And now for a mulberry bush related tiny ad:
