Hello everyone! :)
I want to hatch eggs from some of my show quality bantams next year, but don't want to set them under one of my SQ hens. I don't even want to try messing with an incubator, so I want to set them under a broody if I can have one available.
I'm looking for suggestions for bantam breeds that often go broody.
My requirements:
  • Must be a relatively easy breed to find and purchase
  • MUST be cold hardy, winters are unforgiving here
  • Preferably easy to handle, and docile around other bantam breeds
  • Doesn't require too much extra care, I.E grooming, etc
It doesn't matter if the breed can free range or not, all my bantams are kept in enclosed coops and run 24/7 due to predator presence.

TIA,
Cyprus
