We have a hen that was broody, so we bought her 4 baby chicks. Now we bought her 2 more but she really doesn't want to accept them into her flock. They are about the same age as the others...is there any way to get her to decide they are hers, too?

. No most likely she will view them as a threat and will attack them. You will most likely have to brood the 2 new additions.

These chicks are like 3 or 4 months old. Soooo do you think we should just take her away from the chicks and let them just get used to each other???
