I am currently in the market for the best broody hens lol so if anyone has any ideas where I could get chicks of a certian breed or full grown birds that are well known for broodiness please post here! I want to buy a bator but figure it would be cheaper to by a breed that will most likely go broody. I have 3 eeger hens and have been told they are most likely to not go broody as it has been bred out of them. So any ideas where I could get some nice broody hens? I would love to hatch eggs but cant afford a bator.. Plus I figure that I have a better chance at hatching eggs if I do it the all natural way Someday i will have a bator though... Someday.. I know I dream big lol Anyone on Golden Laced Cochin Bantams? Advice? Sizes? Broodiness? Temperament?? Any advice is greatly appreciated thanks in advance!!
