    Sometimes people slip newly hatched chicks under a broody at night, replacing the eggs she's sitting on. Then in the morning, the hen thinks the chicks are hers. There's some risk to this approach, though, because the hen isn't always fooled and not all hens turn out to be good mothers, either.

    Is that what you were thinking of?
