What kind of success have you had with placing chicks with a broody hen?
I have a hen who has been broody for at least 4 weeks. I have some day old chicks. I placed three next to her, but she didn't want anything to do with them. I placed one under her from behind and again, she didn't want anything to do with it. Attacked it, actually.
In my only other experience with broody hens, they took immediately to chicks that were placed with them.
Not surprised to get mixed results, but wondering what kind of success rate I might expect and whether there is any trick to getting the broody hen to take to the new chicks.
