Best Broody Bantam Breeds?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

 I have three very broody bantams hens. They are bantam mix. I am not sure what bantam breeds they are crossed with though. I am looking for a little bantam rooster for them. I want to stick with a broody breed. I know Chochins, and Silkies are both broody breeds. I was wondering what other broody bantam breeds there are. I would prefer a breed that dose not have feathered feet.

Any game type would be a good choice like Old English Game Bantams , Serama too .

I have some game cross bantam hens and every single hen goes broody 3 times per year ,sometimes there will be a hen that will set for a fourth time , and I had pullets laying at 5 months and at 5 1/2 months going broody .

I've had great luck with traditional Japanese bantams.
