    It has been a long time since I was stuck, may happen tomorrow though.
    My past experience is dozers are easy to stick but harder to get out. I make an effort to leave wet areas alone, you can do more damage than you can do good.

    Probably doesn't count but I brought my new-to-me tractor home on a trailer, started it up, put down the ramps and just then the fuel shutoff solenoid fried and the tractor quit running. Stuck on the trailer, not startable. I put the ramps back up and hauled it to the dealer.

    Lucky you had a neighbor nearby that got you out with his JD
    Hold on! Mousefield...that's your chicken coop in that last pic? Dang! I don't think you can legally call that a coop

    Just got my two sunk tractors out this afternoon; both in mud up to the floor mats and leaning like the tower of Piza. 'Thought my new cabbed one, with only 20 hours on it was going to be laying sideways in a 10' row between two sets of trellis wires and steel posts.

    I was out spraying herbicide between showers last week and started slipping. Having sunk tractors before, I shut it down when I realized it wasn't going to do anything more than spin in deeper. Got my other tractor out and was using it to pull the sprayer away from the 3-pt, and it started spinning in. The older one doesn't have a FEL, I didn't have my bucket on the newer one. Several inches of rain followed and both slowly sank. Dug trenches to drain the swamp, slowly dug the muck out from under them, used a heavy pallet on some wooden posts as a base to push up my front wheels using my bucketless FEL, dug wheel paths (deeper ones on the high side so I could unlean the tractor), lined them with firewood, drove the new one out and used it to chain onto & pull the other one out.

    Tomorrow I'll figure out how to get the sprayer out, and then start all over again next week, between the forecasted, seemingly never ending Oregon winter this year. Probably will get stuck again, just part of the job in these parts...

    I did try to use the bucket to lift the tractor out. There was slight progress but lifting up the front end made the bushhog go deeper. I took the shovel out to dig the muck out around the attachment. It was like a suction cup back there! In the end, I relied on the kindness of a neighbor.

    It makes me feel better that a bunch of you have had similar experiences. Thanks for sharing.

    That's kinda what I was thinking. I can only count 4 chickens in the photo so does each one get 50sqft? More like chicken condos.
