I have a broody hen that has been broody forever now. I put some eggs under her that I had shipped to me and the transit for the eggs was just to much, non hatched. Now I am trying to find some chicks to put under her. This has turned out to be a real task now. I have found some chicks that are 7 days old but I don't know if that is to old to put under her. Any ideas?
