    I have 2 RIR's a Leghorn and a Buff Minorca, and just got a Buff Orph roo.

    Which one of the hens do you think might go broody and raise chicks?

    Is there any way to encourage broodiness or should I look into getting a incubator to raise babies?

    My hens are about 15 mths old and have never been around a roo before. They seem to like the new roo and he has certainly likes them!!

    Unfortunately, I know nothing about the others.

    Thanks again BeckyLa!

    I may try to see if I can get one of the Buff Orph girls from these folks as well. Maybe that will make the Roo happier and in better disposition!
