I have a broody hen( Silver Laced Wyandotte) sitting on 5 eggs....it is day 18 tomorrow. What I need advice for is...she is in a nesting box that is about 1 and a half to 2 feet above the wooden floor(covered in hay).Anyway, she is a really nasty hen,as in no one can get near her to move her and the eggs. I have tried. I wanted to put her and the eggs in a nest I made just for her, in a dog kennel. I can't even get my hands near her, she is always facing the opening of the nesting box and puffs up, makes hissing noises and pecks furiously(it hurts too ). The nesting box she is in ,I know, is too high up for the chicks to jump out of without getting hurt(I know there will be chicks,a couple of days ago she left the nest to stretch and eat etc. and I checked on the eggs, one was smashed on one side, and I knew it couldn't survive,so I opened it a bit more and there was a baby chick,developing fine in it ......when I tossed it ,the baby was moving slighly,but there was nothing I could do. The egg was damaged way too much and the chick was dieing,poor little thing .There was lots of liquid and yolk coming out along with blood) Anyway, I'm getting off track here. What should I do? I am worried for the safety of the chicks. Thanks for any advice ahead of time.
