    What is generally the most broody standard breed. I know bantams are very broody, but I don't want them to get mauled by all my other chickens. Please help.

    I am interested in this same question as I would like to hatch some of my own in the spring. I hear Buff Orpintons are good broodys. I have all standard layers with one little banty pair and I do not think she could cover a thimble as she is sooooo tiny. Anyone else?

    Some of the regular Standards that I have that will go Broody include Buff Orpingtons, Light Brahmas......and I've had a Blue Orpington to do the same...

    Lots of others will chime in on what they have that do....

    Buff Opringtons are pretty broody.
