Broody hen looks like she is wet?


Sep 14, 2010
My Silver Phoenix hen has been broody all summer. Every day I pick her up out of the nesting box and gather the eggs she is trying to hatch. Today when I pick her up I see she has bedding on her back (not normal). I brush it off and realize her tummy is wet with bedding matted to her feathers and the bottom of the box is also wet with a clearish liquid. I don't think it came from a broken egg, there is not a fragment of shell to be found or any yellow yolk. Any ideas as to what is wrong and what should be done? No visible worms anywhere and no poo in the box. The whole flock was wormed a month ago. Thank you
