    Hi there,
    Just wondering when is safe to put my 3 baby chicks in with my other two adult chickens. The babies are about 7 weeks old and are in a pen next to the others with two broody hens... I hatched these chickens from my broody hens which will be put back with the others after 14 days (they have all been eating chick start) (I have 4 hens in total, 2 broody ones with chickens, and 2 hens)
    Cheers

    I don't have any experience, but momma hen should be able to fend for her chicks.

    I normally put my chicks out with the rest from 4 to 6 weeks but then I usually hatch
    10 to 40 chicks at a time [​IMG]
