My fiance and I are starting a little homestead. We are defiantly going to be keeping chickens. I am leaning heavily towards Faverolles because I have read that they are broody and that they mature early. I have considered Orpingtons, and Cochins as well. Ultimately I am looking for a breed that will go broody so that I can use hens as incubators for turkeys, and guineas too. Egg laying ability is not a big concern as I prefer duck eggs and will be keeping khakis or golden stars. Lastly, as most to the point of my post. I am looking for a breed that not only will go broody, but one that i can also cross with a Cornish. So I am wondering if anyone here has crossed their hens with Cornish roosters to get a resulting hybrid in the back yard. If so, what breeds? How did the offspring turn out?
