I have 9 hens and 2 roosters. 3 hems and the 2 roosters I've had since chicks. A year later (today) I bought 7 pullet chicks and currently have then in the brooder. Would it be possible to have one of my original hens brood my chicks or will she kill them?

Probably not accept them..You have a window of opportunity to introduce adopted Chicks. They should be no older than 48 hours and not handled by humans very much if at all..You can try and see if she will?..
