For those that have the breed, do your hens tend to want to go broody or not. (Naturally half of the sites on the internet say they DO, and the other half says they generally are not broody.) So wanted to ask people with actual personal experience, rather than "google" where most sites are just repeating what they read on another site.

It depends on the source of birds. If hatchery then the odds of brooding are low.
I wouldn't go the hatchery route for anything myself. However, since so many people incubate rather than letting hens raise their chicks, I'm wondering if the odds of getting pullets/hens (even from a breeder) that want to be broody are low with this breed.
