I adore my silkies but getting a little frazzled at the broody ways. I currently have 3 silkies and one black australorp hen that all do very well together. I would like to add this spring at least 10 more hens. I'll be purchasing them as chicks. Raising them inside until they can go outside, then they will be in the nursery section of the big coop/run. Everyone can get used to each other through the fence. So my question is this: If I love the friendly silkie but not so much broodiness what breed of chicken would be best? I am trying to for see any info needed to help me with the choice. I have a VERY big coop/run so there will be no crowding. It actually looks very silly now with just 4. Maybe I should get more australorps? What are cochins? Are they silkies? Do they go broody as much? Thank you very much! I am so excited to be putting in my order soon....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
