    so some where around here I read to brake a broody chicken was to put them in a cage with no bottom somthing to do with cooling off there vent hole and body temp to brake there broody would it make it faster if you held them up having the little feathery buts blown by fan would it brake them faster. I am talking holding them for like a min or so not any longer then that would not want to give them a cold

    Seems pretty involved to me. Just put them in a wire-bottomed cage with no bedding and they'll stop being broody in a couple of days.
