    Bantam hen is sitting really high in her box. She likes it up there cause the buffs wont mess with her. She is getting close if they are going to hatch. I need to move the whole box to another area. Is this usually ok? Will she still sit? When is this best time of day to try this where it is successful? Thanks for any help.

    If you want to move a broody hen, it's best done at night.
