    I have 3 hens one is broody and sitting on ten eggs My other two hens are laying in the same box Yesterday I removed 2 eggs because she can't cover them all and some are sticking out from under her I'm afraid to move her because I don't want her to abandon the nest

    Should I continue to remove the extra eggs or try to move her to another spot This is my first experience with this and I don't want to mess up the process Thanks for the help
