Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum and raising chickens, and have appreciated all the advice here this summer. We successfully had a brood of six chicks in August, and a broody hen hatched and cared for them. They're all fully feathered now (about 10 weeks), but we don't know which ones will be roosters/hens yet. My mother-in-law and some friends are interested in getting some chicks from us - but we don't know when to separate them from the mama hen, and also how to tell which ones are hens! They're still peeping rather than making adult chicken sounds. We keep them in an extra large dog crate (used to be our Shepherd's so it's roomy) with the mama hen. And the crate has just moved to the coop, so other chickens are aware they're there and can see them but can't peck them. Would it be fine to give away chicks at this stage, or should we keep them together till 16 weeks (when apparently it's good time to integrate them with the flock)? I tried to integrate the mama hen a week ago, and she kept getting into hen fights so we brought her back to stay with her chicks.
