I have experienced a brood hen protect newborns from raiding flock. She stands alone against all ... including the rooster! and most of the time she wins!

Yes, my daughters have had a couple of ornery hens over the years.  It seems to depend on the breed.  From memory, Rhode Islands are broody and defensive of their young and relatively intelligent, Barred Rocks are generally really sweet birds and can be trained (within limits), Wyandottes suffer from some sort of chicken manic depressive bipolar disorder combined with a little bit of falling sky syndrome, most bantams are broody (we had one banty hen that stole a nest and hatched a bunch of barred rock eggs), and most of the heavy bodied meat-only birds are something like chicken couch potatoes, slow and dumb.  All of them are entertaining.

Yep, if you want Pets that pay you for your kindness with Eggs, Barred Rocks are cool birds.  I've had them lay eggs in you hand when you was handling them.    I had a Chines Banty that would meet me at the truck everyday I came home .  Fly up on my shoulder and tell me all about his day.  I had no flipping Idea what he was on about but he sure was determined to tell me all about it.  LOL   Moe Moe was his name.  Guess the Coyotes got em.  How Sad.
