I have a couple broody Cochin bantams, one of which has just adopted some hatchery chicks. I purchased a couple guinea keets in my order, but the hen will not accept them. In fact, she takes every opportunity to try and kill them. Yes, they do look different than the chicks, but they have always been together.

Any advice on how to get her to adopt them...if she will? It appears to be the color brown she does not like.
