    My buckeye hen has collected a clutch of eggs outside her coop in some long grass. We were unaware of her project until we couldn't find her last night and discovered her and her 8 eggs. I would like her to hatch them out, but how do i go about moving her inside?

    I typically get the area ready that I'd like to keep my broody hen in (making sure it's dark and quiet where she's at) and then I wait till the evening to move her and the eggs.
