Can I move a broody and not discourage her?

    When my broody hen gets off her eggs to eat another hen gets in the box and lays an egg, soon the broody gets upset until the other hen moves. If I move her and her eggs to another pen will she continue to sit them?

    i moved mine, and she was fine.
    but make sure its a place she feels safe in other wise she will try to find the old spot.

    Good luck
