Can I move a nested duck and her ducklings??

Our duck hen nested under a hedge in our open pasture. Her eggs are starting to hatch today. They are very vulnerable to predators in the current location...especially once the ducklings start making noise! How can I move her and the nest/ babies/ eggs to a safer spot? I have a penned-in area where she and the ducklings can be safe...just not sure the best/ least stressful way to move the nest. So far we have seen two ducklings...many more eggs under her. Thank you!
