Should we move our hen and her eggs?


In the Brooder
Mar 25, 2018
We have a hen who has been sitting on 4 eggs for about a week and a half. The box is about 3 feet off the ground. We'd like to move her to a new, more secure location so she and her chicks will be separated from the rest of the flock in a smaller enclosure within the larger chicken. Will this be OK? Any concerns for the mom and her eggs if we move them?
When I had a broody hen she would sit anywhere eggs or no eggs under her. As long as she has food water and a nest in her new space she should sit there until her eggs hatch.
