I'm getting 6 chicks from in a few days from an larger order at my feed store. I've got everything ready for them and thought....I have a couple of broody hens that are excellent mommas. They sit all day long in the next box's. (I take the eggs)
So can I put one of them in with the chicks? Would they take care of them? Just thought it might be easier than trying to get the correct light and temperature, etc.
