    Will crossing a broody breed hen with a non broody breed rooster also vise versa, make the mixes be broody when they grow up?

    Hello, and welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm glad you joined our community.

    It depends on the specific bird. Many breeds have been bred to not be broody. Just crossing a very broody bird with a not very broody bird does not automatically make the offspring more broody. However, I think that it would increase the likelihood of getting a broody hen.
