I have a Easter egger named Michigan and she has gone broody! (Sadly) She plucked the feathers off her breast and often feels very warm. She also doesn't lay eggs anymore. She always tries to get to her nest and sits in it even if there are no eggs to sit on! I tried putting ice cubes in her nest, and holding her in cold water and shutting the coop door so she can't get in. I have read several opinions on this and am not quite sure what to think. If you have any suggestions to help stop this "broodiness," please don't hesitate to post them!
