    Hi,
    Looking for a all white hen, straight comb definitely preferrred. I was thinking of a leghorn hen but not sure if they are broody and are good mothers?

    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    I am also looking for a all white rooster as well. Would like more upright body than a leghorn, quite possibly have seen some cornish roosters with straight combs that I am going to pair with the hen.

    Any ideas let me know.

    Thank you.

    Sunny side up :)
    White orpingtons might fit your bill. Orpingtons have straight combs and go broody, make good mothers, lay well, and also are good to eat (dual purpose).

    Leghorns are generally not broody, so I'd look for a different breed.

    Look into Rhode Island Whites too. Mine go broody and are great mothers. They do come in straight comb and rose comb. I'd hook you up, but looks like you are on the other side of the world.
