    I think I have a broody brown leghorn, I think shes a mix. Not sure. Anyways whats you experience with them, should I give her eggs, or do brown leghorns usually fail you?

    There are exceptions to every generalization, but Leghorns are NOT known for going broody. They're the major source of eggs in this nation and most hatcheries have bred the broody trait out of them, because it interferes with egg production.

    im pretty sure shes broody, But I think she might have a mixture of some type of bantam in her because shes soooo small.
