I am trying to find out what kind of ckicken is the best for sitting.
I have quail and pheasant eggs that I want to hatch but my Incubator is all full of other eggs.

Silkies are some of the best broody chickens out there, if not the best. you might also try cochins, I personally dont own any cochins but, I have silkies, and when I got it this yeah back in march, it took her less than a month for her to go broody, she hatched 9 out of 9 eggs she had under her.

good news on the cochins! my first one was broody in january before she was even a year old and did great even with the cold Colorado winter we have here. I like her so much I got a blue banty cochin this year
Enjoy those fluffy feet.
