:welcomeGreat to have another poultry love! 

 

Yes as long as they are still in the heat and not cold. If they don't like it or look stressed it isn't good.Like if they chirp a lot and are scared.

We have a huge coop and got our first chicks for Easter. Our kids played with our chicks all day everyday for weeks after we got them. The only thing it did was create friendly birds my Murans rooster likes to sit on my shoulder while I feed his buddies and looks out into the pig pen with me. I also noticed any thing weird sooner because the kids kept a close eye on them. I have seven kids and I believe kids can be great helpers where animals are concerned. Accidents happen and kids learn from them. I had a mishap with a hampster once and all my kids have been super careful ever sense then. My youngest is two and even he helps look in on the babies although he won't touch them because he still puts his hands in his mouth to much!
What great fun for your kids and what great lessons they will learn!

I don't know what you mean by a lot, or how old the chicks are.  But, if they tire  easily, they need nap time.  Also very young children  may accidentally step on them  or chicks can jump out of their hands  and have a fatal landing.  It's best if kids sit on the floor and let the chicks explore around them.
