    Hi. I have a sweet 4-5 month old Serama hen that has yet to lay. I'm getting some day old chicks from mypetchicken.com next week and I was wondering if it's plausible that the chicks will strike a maternal chord in my Serama so she'll sit on them. I know she is young, but I hear their breed tends to get broody frequently so is there a way I can induce broodiness in her?

    Thanks in advance!
