    I have a broody hen and I have a roo but I dont think he is mating yet so I dont think they eggs are fertile.... I candled on day 4 and nothing was there that I saw so I am waiting a couple more days.... So should go buy fertile eggs and let her hatch them or could I just get some chicks and put them under her? Thanks!!!!

    Eggs would be safer but the chick thing has been done in the middle of the night an people sometimes get away with it.
