I have 5 chicks right now about 3 weeks old. They have been living in their brooder their entire life. Meanwhile, my Speckled Sussex is 1.5 years old. She has been broody for about 3 days now. This is her first time going broody. Is it all right to give the chicks over to the mother hen instead of keeping them in the brooder? If I can, how long do I wait to give them over, and do I just shove the chicks underneath the hen one day or what? i'm not sure at all of anything so any advice would be very helpful!!
