I haven't had a chicken go broody in over 3 yrs. What's wrong? I used to have 3RIR bantams and they hatched me 4 babies. I decided I wanted to get standard chickens, so I gave my friend the 3 hens and a too. Within a month or so she had a dozen eggs and they all hatched. Since 2009, I have buffs, Wyandottes, NH reds, barred rocks, Australorps, red and black stars and not a single chicken has ever gone broody. I surely expected my buffs to...and ideas as to y not?
