I take a bucket with me, and place some of the nest in the bottom then the eggs then as much of the nest as I can. I go to the new spot and carefully (but quickly) make a new nest then put the eggs in then the little bit of nest left in the bucket. I then grab momma and put her with the nest. I did this yestarday and momma went right back to fluffing the nest and sitting as soon as I put her down.
