Yea if you were goin to move her you should have done it early on like 3 or 4 days into it I always put my hens that go broody into a dog kennel and stick her in the barn so nothing can get her

we found a 4' long wire cage at the dump
looks like it was for rabbits of something, anyhow we added a shelf up over our ladder roosts in the coop & put the bunny cage up on the shelf
we now have to broodys sitting on nests inside the cage
there is plenty of water & food if they want some
most of the time they are happy to just brood their eggs
(we moved the broodys on in at night with just a flashlite on day 7)
we will see come Sat. that is the due date on the 1st cluch.
