    I am just getting back into birds again. been thinking of breeding buff Orpington with a speckled sussex. as both breeds have a great nature and the buffs being awesome layers. but does anyone think I am going to have a problem with broodiness in the warmer months as im thinking of doing this to promote urban farming in our area the buffs as I remember rarely brood.
