I was wondering if any one has tried adding new babies to moms who have hatched out babies already. What are the chances the moms will except the new babies.
Yes i have a game hen that follows me everywhere...but she tends to go broody a lot...but the chicks might be a bit older by the time she goes broody loli did it with a broody hen i'm talking REALLY broody
now if you just have normal laying hens & want to put already hatched chicks up under them.......that is asking for trouble IMHO
some hens will take them even if they are not broodyYes i have a game hen that follows me everywhere...but she tends to go broody a lot...but the chicks might be a bit older by the time she goes broody lol
Thank you....I'm sure she has been a mom....someone brought her to our rescue and she had canker...it went all the way to her brain and we saved her now she's a happy pretty girlsome hens will take them even if they are not broody
has she been a mom before?
put a couple in with her in a broody box
but stay rite there & watch them for a while
if she tucks them up under her body/wings you might be in luck
