I have a broody Buff Orph but no rooster. I was wondering if I went out and bought some chicks if the broody hen would adopt them. If she would then what would be the best way to introduce them to her? This hen (there are two of them actually) seems to be very protective. Any time she is off the nest and you walk by her she puffs up and acts like I'm not supposed to be there. This forum is a great resource to have and I appreciate any responses.
