we have 3 hens that we collected eggs from and put into an incubator... 9 of them hatched today and 3 are taking their sweet time. we can't tell which ones belong to what hen. when would be a safe time to mix the baby's with the 3 hens and 2 roosters? i know they can't be put outside on their own for 4-6 weeks when there are no adult chickens but does the same apply in my situation? should we pick a hen and put her with the baby's in a seperate place or can we mix them all and let them decide on the mother figure for themselves. can we mix them immediately or should we wait until they are strong enough to fend for themselves around the others? we have a mix of different breeds so i didn't know what to do? can someone please help me?
