Although I am not an Asil expert, I think that your hen is an Asil. If not an Asil, she is another similar-looking breed, like a Malay or Shamo. As for going broody, a hen will go broody when she is ready. You can't really predict when or force her to go broody, she'll brood when her instincts tell her to.

In my opinion, she is an Asil cross. She just looks a little too tall to be an Asil. However, she likely still has some Asil in her, though she could also have some Malay or Shamo (two breeds that look similar) in her. It depends on the bird as to when they go broody. Some go broody not long after laying their first eggs, but other birds never go broody, even if they are a broody breed. Asils are generally broody, but they are not as broody as Silkies.

Hope this helps!
