    Hi, I've got a broody RIR and I'm going to put some day olds with her on Monday. I have a Cochin bantam with six four weeks olds, too. My chickens all get along, so far.
    Do y'all think I can put the RiR in with the Cochin and the little ones?
    I am running out of runs. I could make yet another one, but it will take some doing or be pretty small. Thanks!!!

    It could work but be prepared for the possibility of raising the chicks on your own if she rejects them
