Second round of baby chicks.. We have 4 One year old Hens.. and we have five 4-5week old chicks.. I would love to search through the forum and find the answers but with a 3 month old and 2 year old running around I just have to ask.. First: What temperature do they need to have.. like what is the lowest temp they can withstand right now? I live on the Northern Cali Coast and our weather is sporadic 70's one day and next day rain in the 40-50s.. Second: When can I introduce them to the ladies? I have been putting them outside on sunny days (protected with bottomless wire cage) and giving the ladies treats right next to the little ones so they are getting to know each other. I just want to know when it is safe to put them together. Third: One of my hens has gone broody. She has no eggs under her and I have taken her out of the box and placed her next to the food and water.. She fluffs up and jabbers at me, then heads right back to the box. Because she has gone broody can I introduce her to the babies even though they are a 4-5 weeks old? Also could the introduction of the little ones kicked off this behavior? We got rid of our Roo about 3 weeks ago when we got the babies.. (He was gorgeous I miss him, but he was mean to my kids..) Thanks for all the help..
