    I've got a banty game hen that hatched her first baby today and 8 more to go. Peeked at the other eggs tonight and none have started yet. I was going to move her because she is in the coop w/ 3 other ladies and the nest box is a good foot and a half, maybe 2 off the ground. I'm afraid if the chick gets out it will be hurt. I went to move her tonight and she got super ticked at me!!!! The other chickens haven't messed w/ her and the chick yet so what should I do? Move her or leave them their until the rest hatch?
