    I have a hen that is sitting on eggs, right in the walkway goin inside the hen house. If I moved her, or put her in a smaller pen away from other chickens will she still continue to sit or not?

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Michigan! She sounds like a little kid. They always pick the worst place to sit and play.

    [​IMG] Hi and welcome to BYC! I don't really know. I'm new at raising chickens and my girls are starting to lay. As far as I've read, people do move the mother and the nest with success in protection of the flock. Good luck.
