    Hi guys. Yes I'm new. this chicken thing gets complicated. Have one hen. One rooster. And we have a 3.5 month old baby. Thought it was a hen but now the chick is jumping moms back. Can I take him out of the pen with her now? She is a great mom and very protective of this baby. They just started to roost. Will he be okay in a pen by his self? I would like to put the rooster back in with my hen.
