    Once the chicks start hatching do I need to move the broody and the nest? This hatch will take a week or more to complete....

    once a few chicks are out of their shells it will be better to move her somewhere with food and water like a large dog crate.... she will abandon all unhatched eggs after 3 days so u might need an incubator if it is a staggered hatch
