[wisb] Robin Nest Dilemma in Crawford County

A friendâ??s predicament:
A robin has built a nest directly under the seat of his tractor. The tractor 
will probably be needed before the young fledge. Eggs are currently being 
incubated.
Questions: 
1) Is there any chance the robins will find and use the nest if it is moved?
2) How long is the incubation period?   [?13 days]
3) How long before young fledge after the hatch?   [?14 days] 
4) Do the robins still use the nest while caring for fledglings?
5) If the nest is destroyed, will the robins have time to build another nest 
and have young?    [?Two broods per year and three broods is not uncommon.]

Any solutions that birders have to help with this concern will be appreciated!

Thanks sincerely!
