It looks like a mix breed
The hen looks like a mixed breed, possibly with Black Copper Marans in her.
Agree hen looks mixed with Black Copper Marans.
Hybrid vigor adds back a lot of gene material, and you likely have better luck to gaining back the broody type genes.
I have a Welsummer/Wyandotte and possible game also mix that has been a good broody hen for me.
Some lines of BCM's are good brooders.
Time will tell.
So can I make her to go broody?It is spring here & I have not collected eggs from the nest.Now there are 8 eggs.
There is, unfortunately, no way to make a hen go broody. You might find this thread helpful
