I need some broody hens but I need some that go broody allot. Which breeds do?
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.
Get yourself a couple of beautiful, fluffy butted cochins!!!
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.
