Pasture-shelter-broody

Our friend Journey with a tiny shelter she uses to isolate a broody hen incubating her clutch of eggs. After the chicks hatch, they have access to a small exercise area not accessible by the general flock. As the chicks grow, the near end of the exercise area can be removed (as here) so that mama and chicks can free-range, but still return to the broody shelter at night.
