I have a game hen that incubated a brood in a nest in the garage. By the time chicks were three weeks old entire lot was excluded from garage and confined to an elevated coop for a week. For last three days I have allowed hen and brood to come out near end of day for some foraging. The expectation is they would return to coop to roost at thus point but this hen showing some flexibility. If I open the garage door, even after everyone has gone to roost, the hen calls brood out of coop and rushes into garage and quickly starts to get chicks roosting up. In addition to moving brood, she also is getting the 4.5 week old chicks roosting at about 6' above ground. This is all early and I think a function of the imposed change in nesting site. I seldom force such a change and have done most frequently with American Dominique hens that do not relocate in such a manner.
