How do I get a "setting Hen" to accept baby chicks from a farm store?

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Rasher610, Apr 14, 2012.

  1. I have a hen that has been setting on eggs that were expected to be fertile for about 25 days, but none have hatched.
    Can I get some baby chicks at a farm store and get her to adopt them? Any tips?

    Thanks, Jim

    At night you can gently lift up the hen and remove the eggs and put the chicks there
