    Forgive me if you get this question a lot. I scrolled through but couldn't find a similar inquiry. I have 6 eggs I just set in my Brinsea mini. I also have a broody hen sitting on 7 pink golf balls in the coop. She has no real eggs underneath her. My question is, if she remains there when the chicks hatch, can I just put them in there with her and have her take care of them? It would sure make her happy.
