    I'm a new chick raiser and have a little question:

    Recently, my husband and I bought some new hens and some chicks. I was wondering when is it safe to release the chicks from their play box and mix they up with our other hens? For the record we have 3 2-years old Silkie hens, 3 3-months old Easter Eggers and 2 2-months old Siliver Laced Wyandottes.
