    I want my broody to have chicks but she sucks at hatching eggs( failed 4 times) So should i buy fertilized eggs for her to lay on or buy chicks. And if i bought chicks how would i go about giving them to her.

    If she sucks at hatching eggs I wouldnt risk letting her set on purchased eggs,if you buy chicks slip them under at night
