We had a Broody hen hatch 2 chicks just over 2 weeks ago. We decided to purchase 6 more chicks that are now 4 weeks old, they are in a brooder inside the house. Mother hen is doing a great job with her two babies, but I am wanting to put her two chicks in with the other 6 so they can all grow up together. 1. Is it ok to put the 2 week old ones in the brooder with the 4 week old chicks? 2. Will it terribly upset the hen to take her babies before she is ready to let them go? 3. Does it take time to reintroduce the hen back into the flock? My other problem is we are going out of town in two weeks for a wedding, bad timing I know. We have someone house sitting for us and I want everything set up as best as possible for her and all of our chickens. Thank you in advance for any advice!
