First I just have to say I'm sooooo glad I found you all. What a lifesaver. I have a question now. As I'm going out everyday to check on my babies and the mamas (and the rest of the hens and one rooster too)...I'm noticing that the mama's are wanting out of the space I've created for them and the baby chicks. And I mean they want out badly! My question is .....when is it okay to let the chicks go out with the other hens/rooster? Are they still too young? My boss said they should be okay, but I'm nervous to let them out especially until the chicken wire is up on the garden side of the yard and the hawk netting is up over the area. The chicks are jumping and flying a little so I don't want them to get scooped up. My other thought was to put down the ramp that the chickens use and close the hen house door. That way the hens/rooster could go in and out and the chicks would still be inside. Anyway....how old should the chicks be before I let them out into general population? Thank you bunches in advance....again!
