    ok so a few days ago I noticed one of my khaki Campbells acting strange… running around, not coming to feedings at night etc…and going missing for awhile but always coming back… so today I found a nest that she has and it has about 16 or so eggs in it… the nest is between some hay bales infrount of the barn, so I don't know if I should move the nest or what… I just don't want her getting eaten by a fox or something because that would be so bad… so long story short what do I do?!?!?

    Leave her if you want her to hatch them. Remove them if you don't. I doubt you will have luck relocating her.

    Yea thats what I thought to just build I fence around her… if I took up the eggs and incubated them on my own would that be stressful for her or what?
