    Blanket statements like that are useless. There are Sebright hens that are good broodies & Sebright hens that aren't. True of any breed. Granted some breeds like Old English Games are very likely to be good broodies while other breeds like Leghorns are unlikely to be good broodies. However, that doesn't mean that there is never a Leghorn that's a good broody.
    I've had Sebright hens that were very good broodies. I have a friend that raises quite a few Sebrights every year, all hatched & raised by his hens.
