    I would put something down to cover all the cracks. Chicken wire or something smaller would be better. Think, if you can fit an egg threw the spot then a chick can go threw even easier without a problem. Adding a ramp of some sort will help out you don't want then getting hurt trying to jump up or falling off things.

    [​IMG] I agree. If you have other birds you may want to separate your broody and her chicks for awhile.
