    We have 6 eggs that are ready to hatch and this morning we went to check on the hen, and she has pulled 3 of the eggs to the other side of the box, and left the others by themselves. Is this normal, and why????

    Of the 3 that were left in the open, one has a pip, and is obviously ready. We floated them all last night, and all 6 had movement, and floated.
