I couldn't take one more second of those babies in my house. I had to boot them- I just had too. They are cute as can be, but man are they messy and loud. My broody OEGB banty hatched three EE's a month ago. She is a fantastic momma hen and she was as ready as I was for them to join the flock. So 4 weeks to the day, OUT!! They are feathered and the temps are warming up. I put momma and babies in a small section of coop where they can see the rest of the flock but they are separated by a gate. Momma had a few outing with the flock during her "confinement" and she was always so excited to see everyone. When I brought her and the babies out to there new diggs Wednesday - She freaked out! She wanted to be back with them so badly. Yesterday she got her wish. I let her and the babies mingle with the flock. There was definite feather pulling by my attack momma hen. She is a ferociously protective mother. The rest of the flock learned rather quickly to give the babies space- except my Mille D'uccle roo- He pounced on a baby and boy did momma pounce on him. It took a few beatings from momma hen for him to get the idea. I did put them in their separate area in the pen today because I won't be home to supervise. Do you all think they can join the flock this weekend? Is that too soon for them?
