Wire chicken cage

Post by Giffen Farms » Tue Jun 28, 2022 7:21 pm

Does anyone know where I could find a section of the old "battery" style laying cages where the egg rollsout the front?

Have several young laying hens that have all gone broody, I used them in the past to break hens out of broody-ness

Willing to drive as I know they're not popular anymore.

Not much help, I'm afraid, but if you had some plastic milk crates, you could make some stackable nesting boxes for everyone like this: http://petdiys.com/milk-crate-nesting-box/

Thanks, but not looking for extra nesting boxes at the moment.
I've used these wire cages in the past to break hens out of their broodiness over the course of about 5 days to a week i think, its been awhile ☺️
Think of it more as "jail" without comforts like straw or a dark place to lay.
