Heres my situation. My BO went broody at the end of March. I gave her 5 leghorn eggs, she hatched 3. At about a week old I allowed them outside with her for the day and would bring them all back inside for the night. A week of that and I began allowing them to stay out for the night. They have been outside day and night with their mom for about two and a half weeks now. This week she has transformed back to who she was before going broody and has left the chicks to spend the night alone in their kennel. They are 4 1/2 weeks old. Should I allow them to stay in the kennel by themselves for the night? Should I move them to the coop with her? or should I bring them back inside? They were totally confused. Poor chicks.
