My broody hen has been setting on 8 fertile eggs for about 17 days.. I attempted to move her to a crate on day 3... In the middle of the night. It didn't work. She got off her non-fertile eggs that night and when let out in the morning went right back to her nest box. Well now it's day 17.. I'm fearing for the safety of these about to hatch chicks.. How do I move her safety. I have a new coop all ready for her an babies so she will be alone. I have a crate all ready to go. Her nest is already in a tub so I could eventually move her easier. Any suggestions to make sure she stays on her eggs. I'm afraid she's going to get up again like last time. Which is fatal to these eggs at this point.
