One of our hens has been broody for the last couple of weeks so we decided to make her a room of her very own.
We hear in many modern day chickens the broody instinct has been bred out of the poor little dears. We are hoping to get some chicks out of the situation.
We started with some plywood and cut out the pieces as so.
Really it was just the piece on the top left and the one on the bottom.
The chicken is shown below. Opps, that’s not the right bird.
We put a screen on the bottom so the chicken can do her business and we don’t have to mess too much around with it.
Snug little home don’t you think?
In a few weeks we hope to have some little chickidees running around.
