How to use "Brood" in context?

Broods are typically defined as large collections of either eggs or young. More specifically, a brood can be made up of offspring of several different species of animals, brought together under the care of a single parent. This can occur when the mother is unable to care for her own offspring, or when the offspring are scattered and unable to find each other. In both cases, the collective offspring is known as a brood.

The word "brood" comes from the Old English word for "helmet", due to the way that groups of chicks looked like a mass of porcupine quills.
