Hello flockers! I have a flock of 6 adult hens and recently added 7 new chickens (10 weeks old) into a new grow out coop. I've got a mixed flock (no two are the same breed) and all is well... But I want me some buckeyes and I can't find any that are coop ready and I'm not set up in-home to raise them to be coop ready. There's a local place that will have buckeye chicks available soon (few weeks) and I was wondering if I took the most docile of my adult hens and placed her with the babies is that would be an utter murdering disaster or if she would "adopt" them and keep them warm and raise them... ? ? ? Or does this only work with a broody hen? I've had a few broody hens in the past but broke them of it in a cool-off cage. Any ideas? Yes, of course I could set something up in the bathroom here for a few (3 or 4) baby buckeye chicks for a few months before they are ready for the coop but then they will be the littlest ones of both groups and then I worry about integrating them into either group so little... Thanks for any input.
