I'm just starting out, but in the near future I'd like to raise some all-natural. Any ideas?
Silkies, cochins, Buff Orpingtons
OEG and OEGB, too!
This is the best link to natural I have found thus far.
Sikies get my vote.........I use them to hatch out call duck eggs. They cannot cover as many eggs as a larger chicken but, they do a wonderful job.
My Orpington girls are VERY broody ones! We have one who we have changed her name to The Moody Broody because she is Always going broody and boy does she get moody!! But it seems there is always someone is on there....I would definalty consider them if you arelooking or a broody breed..
Definetly Buff Orps.
Standard Cochins!!! They are my most broody hens. I have 4 right now that are broody. They will sit on anything and I have to take them off the nest each day so they will eat and drink. Only 2 are setting on eggs. One's due today. Can't wait to see them as they are some test eggs from my Dark Brahmas.
I heard that silkies, buff opringtons, and wyndottes are good.
