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