My flock consist mainly of white leghorns (Ideal 236). I have several questions. 1. Is it the time of the year for hens to set? I live in the south and winters are mild. Is it the weather? 2. What breeds are used to get the Ideal 236? 3. I have a brown leghorn rooster that mates with the white leghorn. He also mates with the Buff Orp. Will the chicks be sexlink chicks? (Since it is a brown male and white females) 4. I noticed the hens that are setting/ broody are the dominant hens. Is this usually the case? You input will be appreciated. Side note- of the 15 hens that I have, 5 decided to go broody on me this week.
