    Orpington, my girls are buffs all have been broody this year two times each.
    American Game, great broody hens and superb moms.
    Marans, my girl is American standard clean leg she is broody the 3rd time this year.
    My french standard Marans girls I've had 1 go broody.
    Ameraucana, wonderful momma hen.
    Australorp, my hen sets the eggs great I just cant move her. I move all my broody hens to brood coops to raise the chicks. If I move her she breaks up.
    I have American Game cross hens that brood every year.


    There is lots more breeds that will brood, this is just the ones I have.
