I have need for broody hens with chicks that will be used for educating kids. My default approach is to pull from a pool of hens reared in part for the purpose. If special rearing methods not used hens can be very aggressive in defense of broods and these guys can literally fly at your face. Owing to recent downsizing the number of hens available is reduced so will attempt to use an outsourced game hen. Hen shown below. My kids will be helping with effort. She has already "put it to me" a couple of times when changing waterer and feeder. She is starting to relax but still growly.
