I built 3 new, larger pens for my peafowl. I moved 2 trios over that didn't have any hens sitting. I left the last trio because one hen is sitting on six eggs. Do I move the male and the other female and just leave the sitting hen in the old pen ?? Or just leave all three in the pen and don't move them until the eggs hatch ???

Thanks for your advice,

I would leave the broody Pea hen alone until her chicks hatch. I know broody chicken hens will let you move them without too much fuss most of the time, but I don't have any experience with letting a broody Peahen hatch - so just my opinion.
