    The hen looks like a mixed breed, possibly with Black Copper Marans in her.

    Agree hen looks mixed with Black Copper Marans.

    Hybrid vigor adds back a lot of gene material, and you likely have better luck to gaining back the broody type genes.

    I have a Welsummer/Wyandotte and possible game also mix that has been a good broody hen for me.

    Some lines of BCM's are good brooders.

    Time will tell.
