    I have a couple of Buff Orpington x Buff Cochin hens that are reliable broodies. I just put 5 feed-store chicks under one of them yesterday and she adopted them immediately. They really are fun!

    I absolutely adore broody hens. Well except for one of mine that was a biter. My others would "puk puk puk" anytime that I'd get near but would eat from my hand.
