    I have 3 OEGB hens. 2 of them are adults and I have given up on them going broody, but I have another one, a pullet named Jace. Is there a high or low chance she will go broody? I have a chance to get an OEGB rooster and I was hoping as I don't have an incubator that one of my hens would go broody.
    What is the chance of that happening?
    Thanks.

    OEGB? I can't seem to keep up with abbreviations. At any rate if you look at the top of this page there is a box marked, "BREEDS". Most likely you will find the information you're looking for there.

    Great. I Iooked at the Old English Game entry in "breeds" but only a few mentioned them being broody, so I wasn't sure. Thank you.
