    myne some hoe took eggs from nests up a hight to the ground with out breaking them! and id move her away from the other hens if i was you because they might get on her nest when shes off and she wont be able to go back on when she comes back

    and its best to move her at night and give her fake eggs first to make sure she will stay on them in the nest [​IMG]
