I have started a small flock of Dominiques for meat and eggs. I'm thinking to replace the meat birds I'd like to continously hatch a small clutch every couple weeks or larger one every month. My question is are there hens that are known to go broody at different times of the year. Lets say breed X goes broody in spring and breed Y goes in summer and breed M goes in the fall kind of type info is what I'm looking for. I know you can't really know for sure when or how often a hen will go broody but I'l curious if adding a few hens from other breeds would be a good way to help the odds of having a hen ready to hatch a clutch at least once every month from spring to fall. I'm looking to get arround having to have a incubator and brood box as you may have already figured out. I don't really want to make the space for them or have to monitor them all the time. Anyone try this kind of approach of keeping an eating flock going?
