Should I move broody hen or not

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi so I have a broody hen currently that I have bought some fertilised eggs for and plan on placing them under her tomorrow night
She is currently in one of the nesting boxes which is raised off the ground sitting on golf balls I was wondering if I should move her down to ground level and should I make a more secluded area for her to be in I'm keeping her in the coop because I currently only have one other hen in with her due to losing my others last year

With all my broody hens as soon as i see them go broody i make either a door for the nesting box or if there by my hay i have wire boxes i put around them to keep my other hens from trying to sit on hen and end up with broken eggs
