How do I introduce new chicks to a broody hen?

I am new to the chicken breeding scene. I got a rooster by accident and figured he should earn his keep. I let a broody set the eggs but that didn't work. So I put a bunch in an incubator (that worked!) and I now have 9 chicks. Can I give them to a broody hen, and if so what is the best way to go about it? I set up a separate maternity pen so I could keep momma and chicks together until they get some size.
