    I would love it if my black sex link went broody. She is my favorite hen and I think she'd make a great momma... of course, we'd have to buy chicks to put under her because we don't have a roo!

    Quote:I don't know if this qualifies as "broody" or not since I am new to chickens (we don't have a rooster either) but my BSL gets really upset when I collect the eggs. She gets very vocal and frantic, looking for the eggs in each nest box. I've even found her pushing all the other chicken's eggs under while she is laying. It's weird.

    If any of my chickens EVER go broody I can see it being my sweet little BSL, Raven. She is still very young but is almost RABID about "her" eggs (yes, hers and everyone else's, too). Maybe the combination they use to make them is good for broodiness?

    I sure hope so. We just bought two bsl chicks three weeks ago just for that purpose. My gold comets won't brood
