    They will be 6 weeks old on Wednesday. I have 4 with my little broody hen that she hatched from eggs I got from friends. They are almost as big as she is but she is still in charge! [​IMG]

    I want someone to take all 4 of them. I also need to know since they have been seperate from any other flocks what I need to tell people in the way of vaccinations, they haven't been or anything else that is pertinent to the chicks and their mom.

    You are able to separate them now. The "mother" may be a little mad but it will be ok. As home hatched chicks most people should know that they are not vaccinated. But that is why everyone is suppose to keep them separated for 30 days prior to introducing them to a flock.
