has anyone ever tried this? it's more of a curiosity question than anything else. watching my 15 chicks grow, i'm starting to wonder if it's possible. and if so how many can a normal sized (5-7 lb) hen brood?I have a small game hen (4-5 lbs) that has successively raised 12 normal (mutt) chicks at once. at 2.5 weeks old no more than 2 of the cx would fit under her if she tried covering them. just wondering if anyone has ever tried to let a broody have a few and how it turned out.
