    I've got five laying auracanas, one or two of them have shown broodiness, but we have no roo's so we've broken the broodiness when we see it. However we're getting 21 day olds in a few days and I was wondering if there might be a way to see if any of my big girls would take to these new babies and play mama. Any safe way to try this? Thanks!

    Are any of them lookin broody lately? I don't think it will work unless they've been setting or go broody really easily. However, I am not a pro so take me with a grain of salt.

    bump? I was hoping someone might have an idea of how I can introduce my big girls (one at a time I assume) to the new babies to have the best chance of one of them liking the babies. Any suggestions?
