    Mine never have shown an interest in going broody...and even if they did, they are so skittish that every time a leaf fell she'd be bouncing off the nest...probably wouldn't have good results, IMO

    My Gambels never ever went broody. I've heard it's rare for them to go broody in captivity, even in a nice, large enclosure.
