My coops are high off the ground, do u need to move them down
Does she have more eggs to hatch? I had a hen recently that left 5 good eggs in the nest to take care of the first chick to hatch that had fallen out of the nest to the coop floor. I felt like if her nest would have been close to the ground, she could have gotten the chick back in the nest and sat on the eggs. I usually take the chicks from them and put them in the brooder.
Good luck!

She hatched 4 so far & left 2 eggs in the nest to take care of the 4 chicks, so we moved the nest along with the other 2 eggs lower & she went back to sit on them as well as the 4 chicks.
