This is our first time (hopefully) hatching baby chicks. Our 2 year old Australorp has been sitting on eggs for 5 days now. We successfully moved her from the nest box to a box on the floor. I asked at our local farm store how old the chicks would be before their mom took them outside and he said 6 weeks. That is older than I expected so I thought I'd see what experiences others have had? The coop isn't huge (we are going to add on to it this fall because our chicken family is bigger than we anticipated it being). There is a 2x4 ramp with 2x4 steps to get outside, which I'm assuming would be a challenge for young chicks. Any info would be appreciated because we have always gotten our hens at 4-6 months old. Thank you!
