    Just depends on the bird really. some of mine have gone broody just after they started laying, one just 10 eggs into laying and another at about 7 months old.

    Mine usually do in the summer once it's consistently warm and if I don't collect eggs. [​IMG]

    As for time of year, mine have no preference... if there's eggs they'll sit on them!! [​IMG] Doesn't even matter what kind [​IMG]
