you could always make her a nice comfy hutch inside the house and take her in at night.....
what I did was built 2 hole, wooden nesting boxes and put them about 2 1/2 to 3 feet high. My silkies really like it. And I have some in dog houses.
..lol..dont laugh...i have considered it!..she seems to like it inside!...and i do have a hutch.......thanks again!
Quote:Another good idea!!...i could make her a little box of her own to in at night to sleep..i could insulate it even....good idea!..now would my other hens use it to lay eggs in though?..although i suppose it wouldnt really matter if they did......again, thanks for the idea....Wendy
Heres a pic of inside my coop...she sleeps in the right corner(right in front of the vent.....), we have blocked up the vent since its getting cold now...
I placed wooden boxes in y coop for my Silkies to sit on. They love them!
They might use her box, but It dosen't have to be as big as a layer box. that may help
thanks...plus the smaller, the warmer probably....i think..lol...thaks again..hubby's gonna get working tomorrow!..lol
