I have a black copper maran that is currently setting on eggs ( A MARAN!!! I can't believe it) However she has decided to choose a nest box that is in our big pen where I keep all my layers. This would have been fine aside the fact that my layers are all SUPER MEAN to each other and to new comers in the pen, and that includes chicks... I have tried moving her somewhere else, like into a smaller pen. What i did was a set it up with food and water then i took all of her eggs and put them in the nest then i moved her in. She ate her food for awhile then started freaking out!!!! She trampled her eggs and broke one of them :-( So i moved her back into her pen and gave her back her eggs. SHE SAT DOWN RIGHT AWAY!!!!!! Then i tried putting a separator in so the other chickens couldn't get at her, then she freaked out AGAIN!!! I removed the separator then she went outside for like 30 seconds then came right back and sat on her eggs!!! I really want to get her out of there before i reach the critical stage in incubation!!!! PLEASE HELP ME OUT!!!!!! Just to be clear she has been setting for about 4 days on 4 or 5 eggs.
