    The box they are sitting in is about 2 1/2 feet off the ground. The last time I let my hens hatch eggs I had moved them to the floor in a secured area well before hatch date. Since all but one of my hens are hatching the clutch should I still move them for safety? Again, the eggs are due to hatch tomorrow and Sunday. Will the chicks be safe up there? I am afraid they will fall! Should I move them now or can I move everyone one they hatch so they can of course get to food and water? Advice?
