thanks for answering
Many never go broody. It's been bred out of many breeds in favor of high egg production. It varies with the ones that do. I had a Buff Orpington go broody within a month of laying her first egg.
as said its bred out of some hens.an some go broody shortly after they start laying.an for some spring causes them to go broody.
My buff orpington laid for three weeks, then went broody for four. Her genetics are right for brooding...she successfully raised three. My wyandotte has not gone broody, but my australorp has "dabbled" in it.
My Australorp was just over a year old when she went broody.
My Golden Comet Sex Link is just a little over a year old, and she is hatching her first set of eggs today.
My BO went broody at around 10 months.... she's got a baby now, a cute speckled sussex!
I have a broody Mille Fleur D'Uccle now, she's about a year old.
