    How are you predicting broodiness so far in advance? Either way, some hens are better mums than others, so it may be a case of suck it and see and if it's their first rodeo, they could be rubbish at first and improve with experience. Sorry, I can't help you with the breeds you mention, but commercial breeds aren't generally renowned for broodiness. I hope other members with experience with the breeds you mention will chip in and help you further.

    All the best

    I agree with CTKen. You just can't really know beforehand how they'll do. Why not let them both sit on eggs and find out?

    The best broody and mother I've had in recent years was a Black Sex Link--despite having had Brahmas, Cochins and Silkies.
