    HELP....one of my peahens has made her nest on top of the warm room in our barn. We keep our pota-kennels (dog and cat) up there and she went in the biggest one and made her nest. She has 5 eggs under her. Last year she nested up on the straw bales in the barn but then the chicks had a nice esy decent down the bales. But with this it's a 10 foot drop!! Do I dare just move her and the kennel down to the ground somewhere by the straw? Or will she keep them safe until they can make that much for a dive down?
