Well I had a very unfortunate incident happen recently and I lost two laying hens. Now all I have is one layer and a bunch of fancy little bantams which was not the original plan!! I have been looking into BOs and i'm just wondering if they might be too broody and also are they good layers? The two birds I lost were a black australorp and a speckled sussex so I know they would have laid well but not sure if I can bring myself to get the same breed. I also don't want a really broody chicken... thoughts?
