    At what age of chicks do I put the hen and chicks in with the flock of 4 hens and one rooster? The momma hen was originally part of the flock before she hatched her eggs.

    I usually let them back in around 3 days old, but it depends on your flock.

    My chicks were walking around with the flock when they were about 2 days old.
