Has anyone bought day old chicks and just put them under a broody chicken at night? I'm wondering if this would work in the spring for me. I have 2 Cochins and one silkie.... One is bound to be broody because they are known to be momma wannabees! I want to know if the momma will accept and raise chicks plopped under her!!! Also curious, what if the hen isn't broody but I still put chicks under her at night in the nest box. Will she adopt them anyways? Any thought or stories would be appreciated!!!
