    Bathing your broody might break her broodiness.

    i had to do it to my bantam fav and she's still a devoted momma and should be hatching them this weekend. if you keep the water warm enough it wouldn't drop her temp much and if you are using a hair dryer she may actually enjoy it too!

    my girl broke an egg under her and the goo needed to come off.
