    I have a chicken hen that done went broody. I like it when they go broody in the nest boxes because I can slip this cage over the entrance shoot a couple if screws in it, give her feed and water and call it done. Plus I can access the nest boxes from outside of the coop, which is quite handy. It looked like she was sitting on 3 or 4 eggs and I gave her 7 more.

    Here's a pic of my 4 younger turkeys hatched late last summer (two annoying & very vocal "guard" toms and two hens). They should start breeding here pretty quick. I need to build them a place to nest on the ground.

    Not show birds by any means but still nice to see these toms maturing.

    This one's markings are not so good. So I'll going to eat him pretty soon.

    I believe this one has better genes of the two, his markings are a lot better. So he's be my new breeding tom.

    Fresh organic free range never frozen stuffed turkey dinner sounds good right about now.

    I LOVE your nesting setup and cage for the broody hens. I think that is clever!

    Thanks - it works pretty good and easy to build also.
