My EE has been sitting on a large clutch of eggs for several days now. She shares a large horse stall with her three hen-sisters. I have a few questions: 1) I have a large rabbit hutch I can move her to - when I do, do I lock her in or allow free exit until day 21 arrives? 2) Do they ever leave the nest to eat? ? I finally put food/water next to her when I realized she hadn't left in 4 days. 3) How do I move her & eggs w/out her putting a hole in my hand? (She tried to peck my hand something fierce when I put the food next to her. 4) last but not least, she is usually a free range chicken, will "locking" her in the hutch be bad or doesn't matter since she won't be leaving the eggs much? BtW I live in sunny FLA so freezing temps not much of an issue.
