    I have seen photos of Broody hen arks, but cannot locate the source. Anyone have any links to a simple, broody hen ark that has three solid sides and a slatted front? One that will let the chicks through, but keeps the hen in. I would appreciate any links or photos as I want to build one for my mom's birthday. Thanks

    I know I have that info in one of my books. I'm thinking it might be in Storey's or possibly BarnYard in Your Backyard. I will look, but since we just moved it will take me a bit. You could check the library if you don't have either of those books. I know they have them here. Good luck.
