    Many chickens will go broody several times a year, or remain broody almost constantly. I don't have experience with other types of fowl, to know whether they will go broody often as well, but I know that some of my bantams go broody every couple of months. I don't let them hatch chicks, however. But, a chicken can raise several clutches of chicks a year.
