I have a broody hen sitting on 6 eggs. I tried moving her, but she wouldn't settle on the new nest, so she's in the chicken tractor with the other girls. I know this can present some problems. I've been checking every day and removing any eggs that they lay in the nest she's in, and making sure she goes back to the same nest after she goes out to eat, drink, and potty. I'm thinking I should put up a barrier around her when it gets close to hatching time so the other hens will leave her and the eggs/chicks alone, but that would also mean she can't leave the nest. Is there a point when the chicks are close to hatching where the hen doesn't get off the nest anymore until they are hatched? If so, when is that? After the babies hatch, can I move her and them, or will she want to stay in the same nest? They're not due to hatch until April 10, but I'd like to have my plan well in advance.
