    My hen went broody yesterday, we moved her from the hen house into a separate more private area, this morning when I woke up she had gone back to the hen house and sat on another nest.

    Are the eggs that she left still good or should we move her again and put new eggs?

    IF you mover her again youll have to confine her to make her stay there. How long were the eggs left ? You could always give them till day seven , check and see if there growing and if they arnt then give her new eggs. Hopefully someone with more experiance will chime in as I have my first broody now .
