    Nowhere near you, but I hope you find what you're looking for! If not, you could always set up a brooder in the house using a plastic tote or kiddie swimming pool. (The tote is easier [​IMG] )

    If the hen doesn't actually hatch chicks I think it would pretty hard to get her to adopt those chicks, even a broody hen. Why don't you just put the chicks in a brooder until they get a little older? You can make a home made brooder very easily.

    had lots of friends who've done this successfully with a broody hen. read about it and it sounds like a great, clean, green, and healthy solution.
