Here are some pics of our most current renovation project.
There were 10 nest boxes open for use. All the girls laid eggs in 2 of the top boxes, so we had closed off the bottom 5 and used them as storage from the outside.
Inside the coop- broody condo on the right.
Broody condo- not the best pic, but inside are 3 open nest boxes and some floor space.
We hinged the wood that covered the bottom nest boxes and added legs to hold this side open (3 nest boxes long). Then we enclosed it with welded wire.
Rudy and some of the girls, waiting outside for our work to be done.
And the point of the whole project... to get more of these! ; )
Here is Miss Broody herself, Buffy. She's a Buff Orpington. This is her, nice and calm, just trying to look out and see what we're doing...
And this is when she gets protective of her nest! Watch out!
