I've been removing her twice a day to get a quick dust bath, poop, eat, drink and then she goes back to the nest on her own. Should I continue to do this, or leave her alone for the last week?
Also, her chosen nest is up off the ground and I'm wondering if we should move her into a ground-level brooding "coop" before or after she hatches. We've done it before both ways successfully, but since these are shipped eggs this time ($$$) I'm kind of leaning towards waiting until they hatch before moving them.
I know it's a risk using shipped eggs because of the low hatch rate but I've got my fingers crossed.
