How often do RIR's go broody?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I think I have a broody RIR hen, her feathers were all fluffed up when I went into the coop. (And they're was a astrolup, which I know I spelled wrong, but a black hen in their trying to lay a egg.)

Do they go broody often? This isn't the first time I thought a hen was broody and she wasn't.
We even have a hen named Broody!

I have about 10 or so chicks, and 5 full-grown hens. 4 are hens and one is a aggesive rooster.
