    I recently had a EE/Ameracauna hatch out 7 chicks. Best broody I have ever seen. VERY protective. If any of the hens or rooster would go even near a chick, she would puff up and attack them like you have never seen before. Im not sure if yours will do this, but be careful picking up the chicks..I picked one up and she attacked me. Its just instinct.

    I have several purebred Ameraucanas who are good broodies (buff, white & blue).
