    ive got guinea keets underneath a broody mama hen and they are in the brooder with her to be separated fro the rest of the flock, and as she was teaching them how to scratch, she kicks them all the time. anyway, she scratched until she had a mound of shavings and she stepped on a keet and it was brutally murdered by mama and she was just scratching away as it nothing happened and kicked the keet on the mound as if she were done with it it was terrible. so i separated the mama and keets, the keets now under a light. but how can i get her to go unbroody so she doesnt attack me???

    I broke my broody by throwing her off the nest and out of the coop 2-3 times a day. Took about a week and she gave up. If she is very stubborn you might need to put her in a wire cage up off the ground, till she stops.I believe you need to get their underside cool.

    Good luck,
