I've really wanted some broody PR's.Anyway i could possibly get her to go broody?
She is a Production Red? Unfortunately production breeds are bred to not go broody since that cuts in to the egg production. Broodieness is brought on by hormones and instincts mostly determined by genetics. The occasional PR will, but I wouldn't count on it, and if she does go broody she is more likely to be a bad broody or bad mother which is something to be prepared for. You can try things that do seem to encourage birds to go broody (or at least make broody birds happy) by leaving a lot of (fake) eggs in the nesting box, making sure the nesting box is really attractive to a hen, dark, secluded, lots of bedding etc.
