I've been worried and researching what to do for a few days now. My broody hen was setting in the regular nesting box which was above ground. I saw images in my head of tiny fuzzy chickens catapulting out of the nesting box to get injured or mauled by the other chickens. I read that moving a broody hen can cause her to reject the eggs. After getting a lot of opinions from both sides of the "argument", I decided to go for it. Remember when I brought the new girls (the Easter Egger and Barred Plymouth Rock) home from the feed store and I had them in the back of the coop until they were old enough to mix with the older hens? Well, I reconstructed that, but this time a little better, with a hinged lid where I can access the area easily. I made a new nesting box out of an old milk crate (half size) and lined it with new pine shavings. I removed most of the pine shavings in her area of the coop and put new shavings down. I set a cinder block in and put her food and water. And, then... I moved Haughty!!
At first, she was upset and I thought I had made a mistake. She was clucking loudly and pacing frantically back and forth. I decided to let her be alone. About 15 minutes later, I went back to assess the situation and she was cozied up on top of all her eggs!! Success!! Now, I don't have to worry about falling chicks!! 16 days and counting till I hope I have baby chicks!
