haven't had chickens in a while. had a couple RIR hens for 4-H many years ago. they wouldn't set at all. had some "yard chickens" (mutts) as well that set ok. i'm wanting to hatch my own chicks but i'm lazy and want mamma to do the work. i'm going to have to do it the first time and have 25 day old straight run wyandottes arriving on the 3rd. chose them for being dual purpose and frequently broody. i've looked at the breed index. but i was wanting some more input. please list the breeds that you think are the best broody hens. 1 to 10 scale on frequency, mothering skills?(best mammas), and likely hood of the breed to adopt chicks if she has been setting golf balls for a week or 2. so 3 different ratings. i don't care if they are good layers just good mammas. best daddy roo breeds would be welcome too.
