It’s not making much difference …

For the past day or two, I’ve shut the bantams out of the coop for the day, hoping to break the broody mood that has swept through the flock … it’s not working!

They settle into much the same arrangement as they have for the nest boxes … one out on her own (in the cat box) and five together in the coop :lol: And there they stay, all day, until I let down the ramp to the coop during the evening, when it’s one mad rush to get inside …

    Our original hen keeping adventure came to an end in January 2013, when a fox took our entire brood of hens. But don’t let that put you off … you can find the story at The Hen House Archive where there are still lots of stories, photos, and information about keeping hens I hope you'll find useful.
