Moving Muscovy hen after she's laid

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Our muscovy hen, roughly 8 months old, has laid her first clutch. We're very excited, but the problem is she's laid them under our house. We live in New Orleans so all the houses are on cinder blocks and sit 2-4 feet above ground. She's made a nice little trash nest in the crawlspace.

We're worried about critters strolling under the house and disturbing or attacking our hen and then eating the eggs. Is it a good idea to move our hen and her eggs into a safer place, possibly inside?

I'd move her so she and the eggs are safe.
