    HELP! my bantam chicken has decided to sit in a box up high. I am now concerned about when the chicks hatch as they may fall. Should I move her? Also we have other chicken, ducks, drakes and rooster in the pen with her. Should she be alone? Any advice welcome as I have followed the page for months but never posted anything. My first post it seems! Thank you in advance :)

    Hello and welcome to BYC!
    You can put her in a cat carrier with her eggs and even keep it up that high. Just when they do hatch no one falls. You will have to get her out of the nest then...
    Good luck!
