Does anyone have experience with Delawares, Buckeyes, Javas or Welsummers as far as broodiness and being good moms too? We have 6 hens that only go temporarily broody (broody until something else catches there attention, then they are over it! ), but are getting a few chickens (above mentioned breeds) soon that may be fine on their own. We thought about a couple silkies since they'll hatch anything, but prefer a standard sized chicken. We'd like to hatch our own chicks via hatching eggs, since we don't want a roo at our house in order to respect our police officer neighbor who has a weird schedule. So...we need a hen that will hatch anything we put under her AND be a good mama! We've heard that some breeds may be broody, but horrible mom's. That would stink. Has anyone had experience with the above mentioned breeds? If they aren't good, what other breed can we add to our group as a "hatching mama"? (FYI...hatched roos go to a friends house till full-grown and will become dinner or breeders).
