We currently have 5 hens that are approx 1.5 yrs old. My 9 yr daughter wants to try her hand at 4H and has chosen raising poultry (and archery, God help us). I want to get her a couple of baby chicks to raise but don't know how to incorporate them into the herd. Do I keep them seperate for awhile? Put them in the coop so the mommas will take care of them? I do have one hen that tends to brood alot, maybe she'll take them in?? Thanks in advance for the feedback.
