I am new to this and curious about how to introduce chicks to a broody hen. I live in Colorado and have ordered some day-old chicks froma hatchery which will arive in early May. I have heard that a good way to start the chicks out is to find a local broody hen and when the chicks arrive, introduce them into the nest so she acts as a "surrogate" mother to them. Does anyone hav eany experience with this? Curious to know if it is successful? Would I be better off doing this method or just raising the chicks myself? Also, if anyone knows of someone in Colorado (Denver area) with a broody hen they would be willing to sell me and work with me, please let me know. Thanks!
