Does she have the opportunity to get off the nest and go out for a leg stretch and a scratch?

sorry for a very late reply been a tad busy, yes the hen had oppertunaty to do exactly that she was in a large breed dog cage on concrtete and her nest only took up a small section, unfortunatly a few days before hatch date she saw some other chicks came off her nest and has now adopted 4 chicks, and shares duties with there actual mum.
