We're trying a few new breeds right now and I was wondering which ones might have the potential to go broody. I already have a broody Orpington and that's really the only breed I've ever had success with in the past. One of my gold laced Wyandottes is acting broody. I'm not totally sure about her yet. I'm not wanting to hatch any eggs or anything like that right now, but I was curious to compile a list of what breeds you've had go broody and if you gave them eggs, were they successful?

I've had several broody Buff Orpingtons in the past and they made good mothers as well. I also had a cross-breed offspring of one of those girls, crossed with a Barred Rock, go broody and successfully hatch and raise chicks.

What have your experiences been?
