    I have two silkie hens sitting side by side on a bunch of eggs, out on the ground right up against the bricks of my house....I just had anotther hatch some babies and shes staked claims to the old greehnouse where everyone else normally roosts so shes kicked them all out.....they aren't protected from rain so I want to move their nest. I have an insulated dog house I can move next to them and use that......how should I go about this?
