She's broody all right. Been sitting for two weeks now. She is on eggs in a nest box that is about 4ft off the floor. Sooo, what will she do if they hatch? Will she be able to get the chick up and down from the box? Will she protect them from the rest of the flock? Do I need to set a box up on the floor if they hatch? I've had broody geese the past 3 springs but no one has been successful. Is it the same way with chickens? We have a rooster, but have no way to know if the eggs she's on are fertile. Same with the geese but they will sit for weeks and when they finally give up I always break the eggs. Not one has ever had any sign that the geese were heading for parenthood. -- Thank you! One chick hatched. Can I move her nest at this time?
