We will be getting new chicks in a couple weeks. I want them to grow up to be pet birds that our children can handle. I know that frequent handling at a young age will be important, but I also don't want to run the risk of stressing them. How long on average, can a newly hatched chick be kept out of the brooder and away from the heat lamp, food, etc... at a time? My son is only 4 years old, so I won't even consider letting him near the chicks unsupervised (for the chick's safety), but even so, having distinct set limits with regards to handling times would be ideal.
