    Hi! I have a broody black star hen that descriptively should not/ prone to going broody. Any thoughts on this?

    I guess there's always one or two that like to buck the trend!

    Of the 3 commercial Black Stars I have owned, from different feed stores, different batches, 2 have gone broody, one regularly.

    Yes, I find the Black Stars do go broody. My Red Stars never (and I've owned many more of those).
