When to put broody and chicks back in flock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
We have a broody hen, and she has two chicks. We have her and the chicks seperated in a little pen in the big coop area(so the hens won't hurt the babies, but they can still see each other). I was wondering when we let them back in the flock. The chicks are going on 3 weeks.

You should put the broody before the chick so the chick will not be bullied. Put the broody in 1-2 months. Put the chick in at 2-3 months.

  I ask the Lord to be with me,
As I walked through the dell,
Then came the dark of night,
And the darkness quietly fell.
  Then I trembled in great fear,
As the dark of night hung low,
Then I heard the Father say,
"The darkness is my shadow."
