    I have a light sussex hen and am wondering if she will ever go broody. She is about six months old right now.

    Yes, Sussex are excellent broodies. Well at least the UK Sussex are. Six months is a little young for her to be going broody.

    Quote:Excellent! I am actually in the UK, over by Cambridge. I will keep an eye on her - any idea when they start to do it?
