Best broody hen breed? - Page 2

post #11 of 14

There are many accounts of Asils killing cobras in defending their young, I don't know about cobras but I sure know they don't like blacksnakes. I have heard of Asil broodcocks swatting down hawks as well. Don't know if a silkie could pull that off.

Well where in the H.E double L. Do you find one of these birds! Lol. They aint popular around here at least...

Ill probably just get silkies because the fiance wants them anyways

There are plenty of Asil breeders in Texas. Cackle Hatchery ships Asil chicks, they are probably not the greatest quality, but I'm sure they would still do a pretty good job raising chicks.

I have 2 silkies and 2 standard cochin broody right now. One of the silkies got up for a break and both cochins saw the eggs. The cochins just started this morning so I just left one egg under each hen.

Two dogs, 2 red sex-links, 3 Cochins, 2 silkies, 2 Sumatras, 4 Langshans, and an imaginary horse that I wish my parents would get me.
