    I've only had one- and yes she is a great broody. Not overly broody like cochins though- she'll only raise one clutch a year.

    I have 1 and she hasn't went broody yet...a cochin, a barred rock, and a turkey have each went broody twice this year!

    I have three, and one goes broody every few months. Let her hatch out a batch of chicks once.

    Henderson's says great brooder, or annoyingly too broody, good mother.
