    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad to have you aboard. Most of the standard birds when they mature tend not to do much flying. :thumbsup

    Many of the non flighty bantams - silkies, cochins -- are also the most broody.

    The smaller the bantam the more flighty they are. The larger the bantam, the more likely they go broody. If you want a middle, I'd go with a miniature of a dual purpose breed - RIR, Plymouth Rock or something of that nature. Good luck and welcome to BYC!
