Looking for Broody Hens in North Carolina

    I am located here in Kernersville, NC. Between Winston and Greensboro. I am looking for hens that are strong brooders (they sit and hatch eggs, and are notorious for such.) I would love a White buff Orpington Hen, or similar.

    I am also looking for any Dorking Hens. I know this is a shot in the dark here in NC, but I thought I would mention it. [​IMG]

    Please reply if you can help.

    If you could careless the quality, try Craigslist or just here on BYC, sale birds.

    Join the club. [​IMG] I've been looking for some broodies too. I just don't like silkies. Thought about may game hens, but standard game hens don't seem to be very popular where I am. Good luck on your search.
