I have a chicken and she is being broody. Someone suggested that I cool down her body temperature by putting her in cool water but she's still broody. She has started to pluck her feathers so she can be closer to the eggs. She won't leave the nesting box so I have to lock her out so she will eat. Her crest has started to shrivel I would get her chicks but I'm afraid my 5 other chickens will peck them. She raised the 5 other chickens from chicks because when we first got chickens five of them were attacked and killed by a bear and she was very lonely so we got five new chicks and they were happy. This is the first time she's been broody and I need some help so she will stop being broody.
