    I have White Jersey Giants (i am guessing these are related to the BJG) and I have several that have gone broody last year. One went 3 times last summer and hatched out chicks each time. She is also my 2nd to go broody this spring so far. I have BR and they haven't gone broody. But I several breeds that are not supposed to go 'broody'. So I can't answer for your other breeds.
