    All year if you let them.

    Be aware that some modern breeds never go broody.

    Get some silkie hens if you want to hatch eggs from other chooks.

    I don't really think there is a certain month. They get broody when and if they feel like it.

    BTW.. This needs to be moved. Wrong location.
