peahen nesting high

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

HELP....one of my peahens has made her nest on top of the warm room in our barn.  We keep our pota-kennels (dog and cat) up there and she went in the biggest one and made her nest.  She has 5 eggs under her.  Last year she nested up on the straw bales in the barn but then the chicks had a nice esy decent down the bales.  But with this it's a 10 foot drop!! Do I dare just move her and the kennel down to the ground somewhere by the straw? Or will she keep them safe until they can make that much for a dive down?

She will get them down, i all different kinds of hens here and they hatch out babies all year long in my barns loft, everyone makes it down fine.
