    When do you let your broody mamma and baby mix and mingle with the other hens and roos. How old????

    My OEG was a fantastic mom. She was out with the flock from day 1. I think it just depends on the abilites of the mom, and the size/dynamic of the flock [​IMG]

    The babies are 3 and 5 days old. How do I know if it would be okay or not?
