    Wondered if this idea worked or was humane.... Now you have the answer.

    Great, let me know how it goes. Be sure to leave her in there for 4 to 5 minutes.. The idea is to drop her belly temperature, a quick splash won't work in my opinion.

    I will and thank you. I also read to put ice cubes and or ices packs in the nesting box she is using. I'm going to try both. We our EE went broody 3 months ago we let it run its course. Once she started joining in with the rest of the hens I sprinkled Cayenne Pepper on her treats and I got an egg from her in two days. I'll keep you posted and thank you again.

    I'd forget the ice pack idea and go right to the water... :)
