    the weirdest place ive had a hen go broody is in the middle of the coop floor
    just right out in the open
    hatched 1 out of 1 chicks there
    weird considering there aint no cover for her to feel secure or nothin

    what about everyone else

    My current broody is outside between our oil tank and a trellis....with nighttime temperatures below freezing.

    But will she listen when I say no??????

    Under the seat of an old trashed out jeep that was on our property. Sneaky girl, I saw her with the chicks and never knew where she had sat until later we found the shells when we moved the jeep.

    Under a milk crate... i had propped it up on bricks and put a shade over it for a sun shelter for the birds, so i didnt see the eggs until she started sitting on them.

    Oh, temporarily forgot my Dark Brahma on the dog's bed....but I really didn't find this strange as she sleeps with the dog and lays eggs on his bed,
