Out of 6 eggs which I put under my broody buff orp, I had only one hatch out. These were not her own eggs, they were fertile from another hen. She absolutely adores her little chick...Peep.... and is being a wonderful mother. Next week the 18th or 19th I will have 11 day olds arriving from Ideal. I was wondering if it would work if I put them all with her instead of them going into the brooder. Do you think she would accept them? I was originally going to put 'Peep' in with them when they arrive, but she goes frantic when I take him out of the nest, so I think I'll just leave them together. She has taught him how to eat & drink, they seem to be inseperable. 3 Buffs, 2 RIRs, 2 Sexlinks, 2 Black Australorps, 2 Auracanas, 1 Welsummer & 11 day olds next week.
