I have a broody silkie on eggs right now. she is still with her friends so to speak.In her own laying box.Just before they hatch i guess it is wise that i seperate her ,so her babies dont get hurt by other birds...When can i leave her and her babies in with the rest of them. What age?I was told that it easier to let the mother do it. In the past i always had them seperate. .....Never really went back to the flock.
