I found 5 eggs that my muscovy laid in our pasture by some trees. It is not a safe place for her to have her nest there. She has also laid 2 eggs in a nest in her pen. My question is should I move the 5 eggs into the nest that is in her pen? I have heard once you touch the eggs the duck will not sit on them.

Just put on rubber gloves and move them at night if you are worried that it will be an issue. I've never had a problem moving eggs but I don't raise muscovy. It won't hurt anything, worst case is she won't sit on them. If she sits on the clutch at the woods edge she will likely be killed by something so the interfering alternative is much better.
Good Luck.
