    My Cinnamon has hatched out four babies. They are all on chick starter(Mom and babies). My question is how soon after the babies hatching should we expect to see eggs. Sorry new at this. Just wondering. And There is some poke salad plants in the area where we plan to put there pen. Should I be concerned about that. It won't make them sick if they eat it will it? Should we think about putting the pen somewhere else. We have cut them down. Sorry for the long post.[​IMG]

    i THINK if you leave the chicks with her, she'll wait a couple months to start laying. if you take them from her and raise them yourself you should see eggs in a couple weeks
