BYC, I know this point has been discussed, but I'd like to bring it up again. The broodiness rate of Buff Orpingtons. Their listed as a broody breed yet it always seems a little weak. My question is this, in a LARGE flock of Buff Orpingtons (25-50) is Broodiness very likely. Info on broodiness in 1-2 years vs later years would all be helpful. Note I WANT them to go broody. I can't seem to find another clean legged DP breed with the trait, and even these seem weak. My question is, in a large, hatchery (ideal poultry or mcmurray) flock of Buff Orpingtons, can I be sure of at least a few broodies each year. Thanks for answers!
