    I've got one that is very broody. She literally attacks us when we take her eggs. I'm going out there now to put her in a cage and stick some eggs under her to hatch but I'm wondering what kind of mom she'll make once they hatch. Will she be good or will I have to use the brooder to keep them warm and healthy?

    Yes. Fayoumis are noted for being excellent mothers and the chicks become independent faster than other breeds.
