Probably.How big is the hen?A layer hen will not cover 16 eggs.

I had 2 ring neck hens hatch 13 babies I wanted for the hen to raise them in the big aviary they would have been kill but I got a little in door out door chicken tractor and all 13 survived f you get that and keep the surrogate mother and babies in there that way the babies still stay close to the mom I put them in there with mom when they where less than 15 hours old and they did fine just added some hard ware cloth on the bottom to keep critters out then got every one inside and blacked the door and moved the coop when grass was getting depleted in the spot they where one of the best bought items for my aviary to date good luck
