    I have 6 day old chick who is currently being brought up by his very protective mum!
    I started mixing tiny amounts of grit in with the chick crumbs yesterday sort of preparing them for the outside world.

    the question i have is can i let the mother and the chicks out into the run of the arc onto the open grass?

    if not yet when can i?

    Sure you can! The mom will protect the chicks from any danger, and wouldnt subject them to any danger either!

    Take pics!
