What is a good broody chicken other than silkie
I have had many cross breed bantams that made excellent broodys. For a definite breed I found the cochins to be good broodys too.
Buff Orpingtons are supposed to be wonderful broodies. What breed of chickens do you have now?
Silver laced wyndottes and some rir leghorn crosses incubating their on day 14

Cochin bantams go broody a *lot*.
There are a lot of breeds that tend to go broody, mostly when they are over a year or so old. Marans, Sumatras, etc. I would find some breeds I liked for other reasons, then ask if any of them have strong broody tendencies.
My favorelles go broody at least once a year.
