    We got new baby chicks and tried to introduce them to our broody moms. This didn't go to well, luckily no one was injured.

    Cute chicks, however, chick to mom integration works best at night and closer to the hatch date.

    Yup. Worked fine the first time, but not this time. Honestly, I was scared of integrating at night since I didn't know how they'd react in the morning.

    Either way, they're OK on their own.
