I have a hen that constructed a nest and laid a clutch of 14 eggs into it. Nest is located in a field and I did not determine location until day she went broody. Prior to determining nest location I observed her get into a fight with an American Robin and even flew at it a few times where she would go more than 10 feet up and close to 30 feet horizontally. She presented herself to the smaller bird just like she would a chicken she intended to fight. She even ran off a cockerel (young rooster) that chased other hens and initially tried to forcibly mate her. When I noticed her missing the day she went broody, I walked off a roughly half acre area with dogs and they pointed her nest out quickly like they always do. The dogs know where all the nest sites are. This nest was in an exposed location next to a tussock on a very small ridge. Last night and today we got a total of about 2” of rain. Sometime during the day the hen moved the nest about 16 inches down slope which I noticed when I got home from work. Hen was foraging when I arrived leaving eggs exposed. I fed balance of pen birds and then began to follow the hen about for nearly 30 minutes as I also checked on plantings. She talked to penned birds as she went about foraging in the trilling “don’t touch me” tone and then the call morphed into an almost clucking sound as she immediately ceased foraging and began walking a couple hundred feet back to her nest. After milling about the area apparently making sure I was not watching (I was), she positioned herself on the nest site eggs were in this morning and began moving them back into the previous location using her bill. She moved about 5 before giving up and setting down on the new location with five moved eggs exposed. I will be going out shortly to place a pen over nest and determine how those exposed eggs have been treated since.
