My pullet has gone broody and I haven't any experience with this. Help me decide which is a safer and better environment for the pullet to hatch her clutch of eggs. I look forward to your responses. The Little Brown Coop: it's flimsily made and it leaks into the nest box area when it rains. I could possibly put tape over the crack to help reduce that problem. I don't like that it's away from the rest of the flock and it doesn't feel as secure to me. It is inside the secure run, but not the secure coop. I got this coop for this purpose, but I feel like it's not secure enough and the cracks under the nest box could let in snakes. With warm weather lately - that is a real concern. I am also not liking that she's on the ground level over top of sandy soil. Also I'm not sure I like that it isolates her from the rest of the flock - but maybe broody's prefer that? I put her in it earlier today and that's when I found out it leaks. The Storage Side of Larger Coop: I've used it before to brood new chicks and I can easily attach a heat lamp if I need to. Right now there is a set of tent lights strung up and wired through this side. I like that it's attached to the coop and lockable. I feel it is more secure solution. The problem is that we have eggs in the incubator from her hatchmate that passed away 3 weeks ago - those eggs are about to hatch if they hatch I will be brooding them inside for 4 weeks - so in 4 weeks I may need this area for chicks - although probably not since we don't see much happening in the eggs and today is lockdown It's clean and ready for chicks or broody pullets. It's separated from the larger area with 1/4" hardware cloth below and 1" poultry netting over head.
