I cant really tell from the picture but you need food and water in there if you dont have it
Think there are containers at the back.
My broody girls now have food water and a 4x4 piece of wood to stand on. I also made a rain shield from plastic and pegs to keep them dry. The dog cage is raised off the ground on bricks. I will let them return to the coop tonight but if still broody I will return them to broody jail tomorrow. Please friends take a look and tell me if this is now ok for my girls to break their broodiness?
Looks OK to me.
Are they both in there....and have they calmed down?
@aart I had 3 nesting boxes, 2 broody hens taking up 2 boxes. The other 3 hens used the 3rd box.
I would think the broodies might try to use the 'un-cooled' nest(s)?
I would have thought that too and really expected it to happen.
yes they calmed down and actually seem to like it
I feel so mean locking them in broody jail. They look sad . I hope their broodiness breaks real soon
