    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question, so if not please let me know.
    I've included the breeds I have or have access to, and would like your opinion on which breed is best for setting. Thank you for your votes. :)

    **I forgot to add** I also have access to silkies. Let me know in your comments if you vote for them.

    I've got to vote for BO's, they are gentle giants, yet I've had a Easter Egger brood 3 chicks successfully...
