    I have 4 girls that will be a year old next month. The silkie went broody in March. The others are a BO, Cochin and a bantam Brahma. I want to add 6 chicks this summer and prefer to use a broody. What do you think the odds are of one of these girls going broody over the summer? Thanks!

    The silkie will probably be the most likely to go broody, but the cochin and the orpington are also very broody breeds.
