Most of your flock is broody?

I got to looking and lots of breeds are broody or at least the ones that I am interested in adding. Silkies, wyandottes, cochins, buff orpingtons... Is your flock full of breeds that are known to go broody AND if it is do the majority of them go broody?

I have Wyandottes and Orps- 3 of each. Out of the 6, I have 2 chronically broody birds- 1 GLW and 1BO. None of the rest look like they are likely to go broody. With the birds you are looking at, chances are pretty good that you will have several broody hens.

Good luck.

I have 3 Silkies, 3 Buff Orpingtons, a Wyandotte, and several Black Australorps (which are also pretty broody). I have only had 2 broodies 1 BA and a Silkie. I have never had any of my Buffies EVER go broody and I am waiting...waiting...go figure
