    One of my bantam cochin hens has gone broody. I picked her up the other day and noticed she had no feathers on her belly..the feathers are not broke off, and I don't see new feathers coming in. she looks good everywhere else. Any Ideas?

    That is a typical sign of a broody hen, nothing to worry about. [​IMG]
