Broody Hens & Barn Lessons

Actually, I think it was a black mix breed hen in the 2nd barrel not a Rhode Island Red. She’s now brooding while the gold mix has given up.

    I’d forgotten about video. Actually it didn’t smell to badly in our barn. It’s very open because heat is more a problem here than it getting too cold. I think I can still use the same roosts but set them up higher. The birds like the top of the 2×4 divider wall to roost. Higher is better for them, safer feeling maybe? I would like them to keep their poo on their side as much as possible. lol.

    I’ve heard that chickens like to roost on things that more closely resemble tree branches. It lets them get a better grip. Maybe you could yank some of those fence slats zip tie some tree branches into their place.
    I’ve you seen Paulwheaton12’s video on the stink free chicken house?
