Do you move your coop?

I have a chicken tractor that I use, but I've left the chicken coop and run in the same location for years. Does that allow diseases and parasites to build up? I keep the area as clean as possible and I haven't had much trouble with sickness, but I got to thinking about how vegetables and pasture need managed and rotated, so maybe the coop needs to be moved around too.

I've only done it twice and both times I moved the coop to handle a predator. I move their run around once or twice a year, but that just means reconfiguring the fence. They are free-range chickens during the day or I might move things more often.
