Hi, i am new to chickens - i have two adults and one went broody very soon after getting them so we decided to let her sit on some fertilised eggs and 3 out of the 6 hatched 3 weeks ago and are doing very well. We seperated our two older girls prior to the chicks hatching - when can i re introduce them? When can i tell if the chicks are boys or girls? i think one is a boy already as it has a reder crest and is slightly bigger. If they are boys, how to people tend to get rid of them as i dont want to keep a cockeril in an urban evironment but i dont really want to kill them either. When will the 'mum' start to lay again? Thanks for your help, im sure ill have more questions soon!
