I have a 2 yr old broody that is now a 1st time surrogate mama. Couldn’t break her broodiness for weeks and finally gave in, giving her 2 EE day-olds. 2 days later, we added two 1-week old broiler chicks and she accepted them no problem. I have chicks hatching at a breeder today that I’ll be picking up in about a week, and I’m wondering if I could try to give them to the current mama since I don’t have any other broody hens. She is a very tame mama and seems like all she wants is to raise chicks. I have a backup brooder in case it all goes to hell. I’m inclined to give it a shot, just because I’ve realized how much more I prefer letting the hen raise them. After I only had the broiler chicks in my brooder for 2 days... she is way better and into being a chick mama than I am! Any thoughts? Would you try it? Thanks for any feedback/experience!
