3'L, 30"W, and 18"H. Is it big enough to do anything with it? I need a couple of broody pens, for the broody chickens to be able to get away from the rest of the flock and raise her chicks (they would be able to get out every day to exercise). Is it big enough for that? I expect that all my broodies will be bantams. Is it big enough to use as a temporary breeding pen for a pair of bantams (OEGB, Silkie, bantam Cochins)?

It is big enough for a pair of bantams. But having had experience I know that bantams lay better when they have a natural feel under their feet. I have some in cages and I get less eggs than the ones in a slightly larger inclosure. Its actually only good temporarily. I would recomment it if you are taking some birds to the flea market or something.

Temporary at best.

I have a wire dog kennel about that size that makes a good hospital ward if someone gets sick or hurt nad needs isolation. Very useful. Dunno about keeping a chicken in it permanently tho.
