Hi- I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question. I am starting my first backyard flock. I purchased 5 blue Orpington eggs online. After I purchased the eggs I came across two 11 month old buff Orpingtons that I will get today or tomorrow. The eggs should be arriving by the end of th week. My question is, since the older chickens wont be settled to go broody and hatch the new eggs, can I hatch them in my incubator and still let the chickens raise them. I am assuming that the chicken needs to hatch the eggs in order to raise the chicks? It seems so much better (easier) to have them raised by chickens. Any suggestions?
