    One of my brown leghorns laid a nest but we searched high and low. We tried following her but she would change course and get away. Well today her eggs hatched and we finally found them. It's on a steep hill next to a road and very difficult to get to. I tried to close and she went crazy and attacked me. I did find a chick that I believe has wry neck that had fallen down the hill. it was cold and eyes were still shut. I managed to get it without her going after me. My problem is I want to move her and her chicks into the coop but I don't if it's best. I thought about getting them tonight but again not sure. Any suggestions?
