I moved my hen into a condo away from her flock so she could sit on her eggs in peace and rear her young ones. Mama silkie's babies are a month old now - she took 24 days to hatch them so she's getting pretty keen on returning to her flock even if she's totally devoted to her babies... she can hear her mates as they are all in the same building but she can't see them but she's always craning her neck and pacing at the door so I think she misses them? The babies are way too small to integrate into the flock, plus it's still too cold and drafty. I want to move mama *and* babies into the flock when the time has come, so that the wee ones have protection from the other birds. Question is: at what age would the babies be OK for the transfer? They are silkies and bantam frizzles (tiny things!). THANK YOU!
