    Since I am new to chickens I have never had to integrate chicks into a flock. I had a broody hatch 7 little ones two weeks ago. I moved them into a brooder pen at about 5 days old. Today I let them into the pen with all the other birds and everything went as smooth as hoped for. I am very proud of the mama and chicks but I am also proud of the rest of my flock for being easy on the little ones.
