So literally just a 2x4 box?
She doesn't seem to be fully committed to a nest outside the coop right now, I'm going to give her a little longer to figure herself out before setting any eggs. She's just really interested in only doing it in a nestbox in the coop.
I have my outside box setup with a fake egg in it currently
yes, DH made the box out of plywood sheets pieces 2 foot by 4 foot sides and bottom.Made a lid to keep any critters out. I agree about waiting to see if she is serious. We have one hen that we call a "serial" broody. Last year she sat five times during the summer and started in early spring. She is just getting started again this year :) Our coops just aren't big enough to wire off broody hen areas, so we use the brood boxes we built (we have two of them and a nice size stock tank).
