I am getting far ahead of myself here BUT, I am debating over letting my hens(currently just pullets at 4.5mo old) hatch babies of thir own or buying more chicks later on to replenish the youth of the egg laying flock. So I am wondering how broody my girls are likely to be? My girls are Barred Rocks(2), Rhode Island Reds(2), Buff Wyandottes(4) & Black EE's(4). My new Roo is a handsome Splash BLRW, so the female chicks they produce should be reasonably good future layers.... I hope So, how often can I expect the girls to go broody after they are mature?
