My hen ha laid about 5 eggs so far. It's June. Is it likely she will go broody? I'd like some babies. Too late for that?

How old is she? Mine started getting broody at around 8 1/2 months old. Now she's just over a year old and EXTREMELY broody. Has been for a good month.

Pullets don't go broody from what I understand and have experienced. All my broody's have always been after a year old.

I had a Marans that laid a total of 8 eggs at 8 months in a secret nest and hatched everyone of them. Pullets do go broody. 3 of my pullets under 9 months are broody right now
