    We have a broody hen, and she has two chicks. We have her and the chicks seperated in a little pen in the big coop area(so the hens won't hurt the babies, but they can still see each other). I was wondering when we let them back in the flock. The chicks are going on 3 weeks.

    You should put the broody before the chick so the chick will not be bullied. Put the broody in 1-2 months. Put the chick in at 2-3 months.
