    Has anyone ever added a few store bought chicks to a bunch of new born chicks by a broody hen? I have a hen that has three two day old chicks, I was hoping to raise six new chicks in this hatch. Do you think I could slip a few chicks under her at night if they were about the same size?

    Thanks
