    I have one broody and if I could be 100% sure that she was serious, I'd put some eggs under her.

    I love the bucket broody!

    Quote:well, if she is setting on the nest 24/7 with the exception of 15- 30 minutes a day for eating and such and her chest has less feathers than most and is hot to the touch and if she walks around with her wings out and clucks, than shes broody...... also a nest full of eggs will help speed up the process becuase a hen wont set on an empty nest

    Put some fake eggs in the nest, if she sits on them consistently for a few days, chances are good she brood out a clutch for you.
