Ok, I have 4 chicks out of 5, hatched on 8/6...they are in a rabbit cage with their mama...I am trying to decide what to do here, I would like to let mama just do what she does, and be their mama...I have noticed already that they are out and about, zipping around in the cage, and mama is showing them how to scratch, etc...and I want to be able to let them outside for a bit...how soon is too soon? We have raised chicks before, but not with a hen, and it just seems like I should let it happen naturally with mama, but I want to be able to let them be outside too, but dont want to lose them either....what do I do?? Can I put them in our coop with the rest of the flock? I just dont know how soon to do this and that?? Any advice??
