    My first broody hen and it's my Maran! I was thinking about breaking her bloodiness but then I thought. I do have 4 week old Easter eggers that have been inside my house. I was wondering should I just give her the chicks? Or is that a bad idea. Maybe she'll think the eggs hatched and she has babies? Lol

    Your chicks are too old, she will probably attack them and could kill them.
