My two adult hens, a Polish bantam and a Silkie, went broody within two weeks of each other. So I needed to build something to isolate them from the rest of the flock when they hatched their chicks. I was planning to build this elaborate thing when I passed by one of the local farm implement stores and saw the perfect size crate in the "free wood" set-aside. Some 2 X 2's, a 2x4, some hardware cloth, two scrap pieces of plywood, and some ingenuity later: The paint is some oops paint from Wal-mart (candy apple red) and a can of "Sour Apple" spray paint I had bought last year because I liked the color. I think I need to stencil something on the front; it looks a little plain. Other than that, I'm happy how at came out. I still need to finish the roof, but I keep it covered with the tarp until then. I also learned some lessons to utilize when I paint the main coop. For example: Use spray paint to coat the hardware cloth, because painting with a brush causes drips. Also, using a roller is faster than a brush ( and easier on my wrists), but you need to do more coats of paint to get the proper coverage. This is inside the broody coop, with my Polish hen, who just moved in today. This is why she moved in today: She's still setting on two ceramic eggs, and if my co-workers' mom hatches her Silkies out as planned, the eggs will be "hatching" soon.
