Eglu size question, to isolate sick chicken

Recommended Posts

We need to take Lily to the vet as she may have a foot infection,& after a quick chat with the vet this morning it seems that if they drain her foot & dress it she will need to be kept isolated from the other hens.

So,I have a MK2 Eglu in a chicken pen,& I also have a MK2 run which is unusd.

I also have a MK1 Eglu with no run,which is unused at the moment.

The question is will my other 4 hens squeeze into the MK1 if I put it into the pen,leaving the MK2 & run for Lily?

Or will the MK 2 run fit onto the MK1 Eglu.


Alternatively I can keep her in the broody cage,but it is not very big.


Life is just too complicated sometimes..........
