    UPDATE! Well this morning I was planning on changing out the bedding. Went out and she had abandoned the nest, eggs were cold ther was a giant poop and some watery blood. I opened the door and she came out eating,drinking like crazy her comb is very pale, she went w/ other chickens and they attacked her viciously!!! Shes now bleeding still puffed up and clucking, put he back in broody pen seems to be eating and drinking, i candled the eggs they are cold mind you, only at 4 days but on all eggs there is a spider like figure w/ veins but a bright red ring around all I'm assuming they r bad! I'm not quite sure what to do?

    Sorry this is so long...

    Your broody has bloody poo? That sounds like she has something wrong in her intestinal track and you may need to treat her.
