    Impossible to know now.
    How old are they?
    Are they hatchery stock? Most hatcheries breed to avoid broodiness. However, that is just a generality. I have 10 hatchery stock hens. Three went broody. Two are supposed to "rarely" go broody. One of them became an absolutely excellent mother this year.
