    I have a broody hen that has broken egg all over her. Thank fully if is not a fertile egg because you're still waiting for those to come in the mail. But her under side is a mess. I plan on moving her as soon as I can introduce our new pullets to the flock witch I'm going to try tonight. But what is the best way to clean her off

    I usually trim the feathers. I think it less stressful than trying to give a broody a bath who fights the whole time trying to get back to her eggs.
