Does Buff Orpington rear baby chickens?

So I'm getting 1 more chicken into my brood because the limit is 10 in the city so why not. I'm getting a baby Ameraucana, which it would be awesome if it turn out to be an Easter egger. I have a year old Buff Orpington hen and Rhode Island Red hen and almost 2 years old Brown Leghorn. I know the RIR and Leghorn won't rear the baby chicks but does the Buff rear the chicks? I am only getting 1 and will it die of loneliness or do I need to buy another one. Can I also like leave the chicks with the Buff for an hour or two so they can bond with each other? Anyway, thanks for helping. I've never raised 1 chick alone before. The other 3 hens were raise together as chicks.
