Most sexlinks and hatchery strains of birds will tend not to brood because they are bred for production.

That said, if you want a non broody breed, a leghorn will fit that bill.

However, there are always exceptions. My best broody was a sexlink, and I've known a leghorn who hatched out a clutch of chicks.

That's true. Just at the moment I have a commercially bred White Leghorn and an ISA Brown red sex-link that are both broody and determined about it. But generally speaking neither hardly ever do so.
