In the Brooder
- May 11, 2013
I have a hen that's been broody for nearly a week and I'm wondering what would happen if I bought a few day old chicks from the feed store and stuck them under her while she's sleeping. Has anyone tried anything like this with any success? Or is it just a bad idea...any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. We actually want a few more hens so I thought this would be a great solution to both problems but I'm new at this and haven't dealt with broody hens before.
