    I think the top two vote getters in the "Most Likely To Go Broody" category would be silkies and cochins.

    Not sure how well cochins or silkies lay eggs but they certainly are known for going broody. Buff Orpingtons do tend to go broody, not as reliably as some but they lay eggs fairly well too.
