    Silkies are very broody. They are often used to hatch other breeds & 1 guy I know uses them to incubate his pheasant eggs.

    Yes Buff orps fit more eggs underneath, though dont let her sit on silky eggs, she is too big!!
    If you want to hatch silkies, get a silky hen!!
    Ive had both breeds, Goldilocks my buff orp is 16 years old and still goes broody , God Love her!
    What type of eggs are you going to hatch?
