    SSHs do not typically go broody.

    We have 3 SSH hens. They are very active & flighty. Not one of them has hinted at broodiness. They are very pretty girls.
    My Little Roo (avatar) is a SSH too.

    [​IMG] I thought this was going to be a thread about some fast food chain mixing in some percentage of chicken meat in with the hamburgers to save on food costs! LOL
