    You can't always tell what you're going to get, unless you know the breeder. It just depends on the genetics of the individual chicken. I think the best bets would be silkies and buff Orpingtons, though.

    My black Australorps (got these from McMurray) go broody consistently and repeated spring through fall. They are also excellent mommas to the chicks.

    Game chicken breeds go broody alot. My games are always broody, and so are my buff orpingtons.
