Does not having a roo mean the hens will be broody more often? A fellew chicken owner told me that when you have no roos the hens will go broody 4-6 times a year. Is this true? We just broke one from her broody mood, and all is well again. Just wondered how often it will happen. We have one coop with two groups...I group is 1 1/2 years old...the others are 19 weeks. They all live together. It is a mixed flock... Buff orp, SLW, amber links, RIR, BRocks and EE Anyway...just wondering if it is so.
