Are you keeping the door on this dog crate open all the time? Or you let her out? Lets do this----lets go back about 5000 years, before you and I there was a chicken setting on some eggs, and she survived without our help---LOL. I set 67 broodies just last year---only thing I did was move them to a hatching pen----had food and water(not close to her nest) and a place for her to stretch her legs and dust bath. I Never try to coach her off her nest, never hand feed her in her nest----she knows what she is doing----I never look under them, but I do look at their eggs if I see them off the nest. Everyone of them hatched their eggs without my help. Good Luck!
Thanks, PD-Riverman. I know you're right. I don't think I was this concerned with my own kid. Oh, wait. Yes I was. And yes, the door to the crate is propped open. So, I guess I'll forego the trip to the outside and just leave her by herself in the crate in the garage. I'll make the outer area larger and put a dust bath in there. I'm feeling better already.
