How old do baby chicks need to be to take away from there momma
Why are you asking? Do you have a broody hen with chicks? Know someone with a broody hen with chicks? Or do you want chicks? Most chicks never even meet their Mamma! They are hatched in incubators, and shipped to a store, or to the person who has ordered them. A Mama broody will usually kick her chicks to the curb when they are 4 - 6 weeks old, but some do much earlier. It all depends on the particular hen.
