is it just the buff or the black aswell?
Any chicken of any breed can go broody. Some may be more likely than others, but in the end, it's an individual thing. I have a black Australorp at present that's broody. A black Orpington would be pretty unusual; I wonder if you have a black Australorp.
Henderson's chart tells how likely breeds are to go broody. http://www.ithaca.edu/staff/jhenderson/chooks/chooks.html#orp
No...my Buff does go broody but nothing like my blue Orpington...
No... a chickens coloring doesn't affect their broodiness
