    Do hens go broody if you don't have a rooster? and do Black Australops go broody?

    Hens can and will go broody with and without a rooster. And I'm not sure about the Black Australops but I think that all breeds of chickens can go broody some not as often as others.

    I would have to agree. I even had a leghorn go broody once.
