Ok so I'm going to pick up some baby chicks and im wondering what will happen if I put them in the flock. Well they attack them or will I have to get my buff orpington and see if she will accept them? Give me any advice!:D

Yes your flock will attack them unless you put them under a broody hen in the night and even then it is a gamble. I would brood them separately until they are at least 7 weeks, if possible in the corner of your coop with them in a dog crate so your other girls get used to seeing them.
