    Yes, you need to build her a secure box and mini run at ground level ASAP. Eggs may roll off and break at high level and chicks certainly will

    Good Luck,

    Quote:You could wait and try moving her at night. Most birds tend to calm down when they've gone in to roost. Either try that or do a quick swap when she gets off the nest to eat & drink.
