What's the best type of Chicken hen to foster other little chicks? I'm getting them very young & no matter what I do I lose some so I'm looking into getting a foster hen just to help raise them..
Thanks for your opinion & thank you in advance

I'd agree with the Orpingtons...not just the Buffs either....my jubilee, spangled and white are all as broody as broody comes and I'm sure would adopt a darned fox if it sat under them for a minute or two!!!

Silkies are great broodies too but have a lower 'capacity' as they are that much smaller.

As has been said before :smile: :

Orpingtons are great and so are Silkies!

Oops, I meant to say just Orpingtons. The Buffs are just the color we have right now. lol. I agree with you! :)
