My Broody Bantam finally became a Mom to one chick (Nugget is 12 days old) and I have them in a seperate coop from the rest of the flock. The rest of the flock is in a coop right next to her and Nugget and they consist of 4 production reds age 3 months, 2 Cochins also 3 months and 2 Buff Orps age 2 months and one 18 month old Bantam Rooster who was her mate and is Nuggets father. My question is when can I introduce Mom and Nugget to the rest of the flock? Obviously she used to be in a coop with the Rooster but I moved him to the other coop with the new flock after she became a mother. The adolesent birds have never been in a coop with her as she was setting her egg while they were in the brooder and then they were moved into the new coop. I'm afraid also that Nugget may be a cockrel which would eventually instigate fights with the other Roo. Should I try to rehome Nugget and then introduce Mom to the new flock or should I just try to introduce them both and if so, at what age should I do this?
