But, the brooder coop is too cold to let her hatch in their this time of year. We can put a heat lamp in there, but I am still not 100% comfortable with it. She is gonna be a frequent brooder I think. She went broody for the first time in November. We gave her eggs and then attempted to move her to the brooder coop, but that is apparently a good way to break her. Our main coop and run is not fully covered, whereas the brooder coop/run is fort knox. The risk is ravens. We are lucky to not have to worry about many other predators. I don't think that I can afford to get a cover over the run. We currently run sisal rope (think...like string) along the top so nothing can swoop down. I wonder if we add in more row of that if it will suffice. It is currently about every 12 ". We could change it to every 6". Would this work, maybe? Why can't she wait another 2 mos. I don't like to keep breaking her.
