SO mama broody has finally rejoined the Flock (chicks hatched out end of June so I guess its about time) there are 3 left and I notice they are their own tiny little flock and hang out together-- today I came home from out of town(my daughter said she hadnt seen them in a couple of days and I found them in the Coop! Usually they hang out in the bushes behind the chicken yard (it has a gap under the fence and the chickens go out and free range about on our 2 acres) and maybe if they see their Broody mama they will scramble after her and range a bit, by themselves-- they are their own little mini flock and keep to themselves away from the other 11 chickens.... Will they start going out more to free range? -- it would probably be safer if they would hang with the Big chickens alittle more- there is such a size difference they are about half the size of the adults although fully feathered (except their heads are bit funny looking)... Will they ever mingle more and become part of the larger flock? Is this going to happen every year I will get little mini flocks of new chicks that dont mingle? Answers would be great thanx in advance!
