    If your asking which breed goes broody the most. I would have to say Silkies and cochins. I have had games and they go broody a lot too.

    Chicken land.
    Previously I've had a few pekin x silkie bantams, really sweet chooks but they would brood almost every second month. Apparently orpington's go clucky as well.

    x Good luck with your future chicks! [​IMG]
