That is amazing that they all live together peaceably! You must not have very many males.

We've had hens hatch out their own eggs. The dad did quite well with the babies until about four weeks or so, then he didn't get along and we had to separate him. Later on, we paired everyone up and put the dad back in with the mom.

We've hatched chicks in the incubator and, once the chicks were mature, given lonely males a female partner, and added a female to a couple of females. But we've not put little chicks in with adult birds. Actually we did try a surrogate mom with a newly hatched chick, and she didn't care for it and it died. So, if you're asking about putting the chicks in with your adult birds, I don't think it would be successful. They would not stay warm and would probably be pecked. I guess if you wanted to experiment with one, under close supervision, you could, but I would be hesitant. Let us know how it goes, if you do.
