how old are bitties (chickens) suppose to be before you can separate them from their mothers?
It's best to let momma decide when the chicks no longer need her - that way, you are assured that they can keep themselves warm without any assistance. Depending on your set-up, she will also teach the chicks to roost.
You'll know, when mama kicks the bitties to the curb, she has had her fill of them.
