I hope someone can help me. We were intersted in getting baby chicks. We got them today. 2, 5 day old golden sexlinks, 1, 4 week old dark brahma, and 1, 3 week old barred rock. I have an area set up with for the chicks with the light, the food, shavings and everything. I also have a hen in my backyard that has gone broody. So the lady that i got the chicks from said that we could probably put the 5 day old chicks with the broody hen and then she will mother them and raise them. not only keeping them warm but helping her to come out of her broodyness. We tried to do that however she picks on them a bit, not too bad, but mostly wont have anything to do with them. she goes back to setting in her corner, and the chicks are both huddled in the corner. Should i just abandon this idea? Please any help is much appreciated.
