    Is it possible to go broody more than once a year?

    I had two of my girls go broody a month ago and they just started again. I think it may be because the weather has warmed again.

    Yes, some seem to spend most of the warmer months of the year broody. Some hens of the same type seem to be broody all the time whilst others go broody infrequently,
