Do any of the pullets I have look like the type that might go broody?

I have 30 chicks that are 1mo old. Do any of them look like ones that might go broody when they grow up (list of my chicks in signature below)?

Just wondering as it would be fun to order eggs and have them hatch



Thanks!

Any breed is capable of going broody, so you may be surprised. I've had Ameraucanas (EEs) for over a year and they've never gone broody. My 10 Silkie hens are constantly broody - I have 3 sitting on eggs and 3 raising chicks right now. I've also heard Cochins are very broody, but I don't have any. Bantams a little more prone to it than standards.

I've had one BR go broody but only once. I've had friends who's BO's have gone broody. You just may be surprised though. Some on the BYC have had their EE's go broody though I haven't had any of mine do so. I have had a Marans, Dark Brahma and three Barnevelders go broody so far this year. Good Luck!
