Just wondering as I have never been able to make this work but I thought maybe someone else has? I have purchased 6 chicks who will do just fine on their own but it is nice when they have a mother, don't you think? Anyway, I have several broody hens whose eggs did not hatch and I thought that maybe if I introduced them to the chicks, their mother instincts would kick in and everyone would be happy! The hens seemed uninterested in the chicks (who would accept the hen I feel) and only interested in their food. I took them back out and now they are back in their nesting boxes again. Anyone have any tips or success with this?
