    We had a Phoenix hen. We absolutely loved her. She did go broody and was an excellent mom and surrogate mom. She layed small off white eggs. She was not a prolific layer, but she more than made up for it by sharing the parenting with our Silkie hen. When the Silkie started chasing the youngsters away at about 10 to 11 weeks, the Phoenix took all of them on and contiued to look after them. She got killed accidentally and we plan to get more Phoenix in the future.
