Question is though- she's gone broody in a nest box. I attempted moving her at night into her own space. She was not happy. She didn't set on the fake eggs at all that night. Immediately got off. The next morning when I let the girls out for breakfast she ate and then went right back to her original nesting box. Even though it was empty. I put the eggs back under her in hopes I didn't break her broodyness. She's been sitting again for 3 days just fine.
Is it ok to leave her, then just move her once the chicks start to hatch? It's chicken coop cleaning day and I'm concerned I'm going to spook her every time I have to clean the coop. Or should I try moving her again before I set the fertile eggs under her?
This is my first broody so I'm lost as what to do.
