    okay, if i incubate eggs, will the chickens reaccept the chicks after they hatch? and after the chicks hatch what do i do?

    while their in the incubator, do i leave them alone? or is there anything that needs to be done?

    What will they eat, drink, will they? where do i put them?

    I wouldnt put young chicks with them while they are still young maby when they are a bit older unless they already have chicks due to hatch. I would recomend keeping them in a brooder once they hatch for 6 weeks keeping them warm then put them with the others when they get older. Otherwise let the chickens hatch the eggs if they are broody my are quite often.
