At 3-1/2 months old, won't be any eggs dropped until spring at the earliest. As far as "will they go broody?"....... there may be a "slight" chance one would, given all the natural stuff you have in the pen........(looks good). But, I have all-wire flooring in my pens, and I think that pretty much deters them from getting in a broody mood, but it doesn't matter to me as long as the poop drops right on through so the pen stays poopless.
