Broody questions; after she hatched the chicks


Apr 12, 2021

A while ago I gave my broody hen 8 eggs and she eventually broke them all except one. (first time broody) and that one chick hatched today. She is currently in a seperate area with her one chick and 2 ceramic eggs, still sitting on them hoping it will hatch. Earlier today I ordered 10 black australorp chicks from tractor supply so the chick wouldn’t grow up lonely. I’m guessing the chicks will come within a week. Will she continue to sit on those fake eggs for a week so we can sneak some Australorp chicks under her, and If she stops sitting on the ceramic eggs will she still accept the chicks if we still put them under her at night? Will the chick itself being a week old accept day old chicks?
