Moving momma and baby chicks into the henhose

post #1 of 4

Can anyone tell me when it's ok to move the momma and her baby chicks into the henhouse? Mine are about 1 and a half weeks

Mine never leave, I just separate them with a piece of wire fencing. You will probably have to do the same for a week or two.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Does the hen house has other chicken in it? If you have a flock then like oldhenlikesdogs said, separate the with some chicken wire or hardware cloth so the other chicken can see them but not peck at them. If no barrier is placed, they may wander and the other chicken may peck at them and hurt them. Momma will protect them but is better to be safe than sorry.

Yeah I have a section of my run chicken wired off when I got some new chickens before, I put them in there and everything seems to be fine so far, in about a week I'll open it so they can wander into the rest of the pen
