    I was wondering how much longer I need to keep the momma hen and chick seperated from the other hens and rooster? The chick hatched on 7/15/13. All of my chickens are in the same coop together, but I have a section blocked off just for the momma hen and chick. The chickens are Buff Orpingtons.
  2. Give it a try and see what the others do, they will probably peck on them, cause they were separate a few month's. Just watch them and make sure they don't get killed
