    Well after trying and trying to get one of my hens to go broody (which they refuse to do ) I was looking for a broody since I being busy drowning in school and can't hatch my own would like to know what is the most broody of these?

    Cochins, Araucana, Jersey Giant, or Buff Orpingtons

    Thanks

    Cochin, but if you want for-sure broody, go with a silkie or a mille fleur d'Uccle... [​IMG]

    Of the ones you listed - cochins. But silkies are THE BEST for going broody!
