    It would be better if they didnt need that much room. They are not going to free range.

    Yes, they do go broody.

    What about RIR or Delawares? Both are good layers and don't tend to go broody.

    I don't know what you can order but any of the Granny type chickens are nice, Buff Orpingtons, Delawares, any color Wyndotte

    Yeah, brown leghorn is a good choice, too.

    Those Jersey Giants are nice chickens - if you don't mind the size!

    Yes, they do go broody.

    My buff orpingtons would tend to disagree. [​IMG]
