I thought I posted this yesterday but can't find it... oh well here is my question agauin. I have a momma and a baby seperated in big dog cage in the coop. the baby is approaching 2 weeks old and very active. When can I set them free with the rest of the flock??? Momma is very protective of the little bitty, but I worry she is getting a bit tired of the confinement. She won't leave the baby for anything... it is very difficult to clean out the cage she actually attacks me if I try to pick up the baby. This is my first hatched out chick.. so I am not familiar with what to do... any thoughts??
