In my search for a non-broody bantam breed, I have found that information on broody hens is much easier to come by than non-broody breeds. So, I thought I could start a thread and we could compile a list or two of non-broody breeds, then others looking for non-broody breeds could find the list easily. I will start a list of non-broody bantams and non-broody LF breeds. Then, as people add breeds to this thread, I'll edit them into my lists as long as the site lets me edit, then I'll start editing other posts of mine on the first page to add more as they're added to the thread. The purpose of this thread is to share information, experience, stories, pictures and anything else you would like to about non-broody breeds of chickens. Sharing experience and information is important! =) Non-Broody LF (b) = also in bantam Leghorn (b) Rhode Island Red / RIR (b) Wyandotte (b) Minorca Ancona Barnevelder Rock (infrequently) Blue Andalusian Chantecler (infrequently) Polish Egyptian Fayoumis German Spitzhauben/Appenzeller Golden Campine Lakenvelder Sicilian Buttercup Hamburg Sultan Ameraucanas Catalanas Crevecoeurs La Fleche Orloffs Phoenix Redcaps Sumatras White Faced Black Spanish Yokohamas. Non-Broody Bantams Leghorn Rhode Island Red Wyandotte Sex-links are a special case. They are not non-broody per se. The broodiness of a sex-linked hen depends upon the breeds mixed to achieve the link. Mostly, sex-links are bred for production, thus breeding out broodiness usually. I have two red/gold sex-links that, if I allow them to collect a clutch, they will go broody, but as long as I collect their eggs, they don't go broody, but if I don't leave them at least one egg, they'll start a new nest and hide eggs on me.
