    I found this on Craigslist and was wondering if it would make a good broody coop? I could make a run for it and then attach it. Im worried about my broody hen whenever the eggs hatch. Not sure if the other hens will peck the chicks or not. So I thought maybe this would be a good idea for her? Is it worth the money? What do you think?

    I think it would work great!

    All it needs is a run and a broody hen [​IMG]

    I think it's worth the money, you'd spend about that much on one sheet of 3/4 inch plywood. I'd put in a couple little windows for a vent and cover them with hardware cloth.

    I would so jump on that right away! I'm spending all weekend making a two room brooder coop and I only wish I could pick one of those up off of CL. [​IMG]

    Okay so I emailed him to see if he still has it. [​IMG] That he does. It was just posted tonight, so we'll see. If I do end up getting it I will post pictures of what I do with it. Thanks everyone!
