We hatched our own gorgeous chickens last year including Isa Browns, (which we gave away), Light Sussex, Araucana, Golden Lace and Golden Campine. Had to give away the roosters as we live in town and they aren't allowed. All gorgeous hens but our Golden Lace keep becoming severely broody. Our main purpose for keeping hens is for the eggs, and of course when they go broody they not only stop laying but interrupt the laying of the other hens to some extent. I cure their broodiness by putting them in a large bird cage for a few days but am finding no sooner do I cure one then another one becomes broody. I have 3 of these. I know it's natural for this to occur, but not something I want to encourage in my hens, so wondering if some breeds are just naturally more broody than others.
