Chicks Weaned

20131126 006Coincidence? As soon as Dusty left, Mama left the chicks home alone and went free ranging with the girls.  The chicks are almost 10 weeks old and have been free ranging with Mama for the last 3 weeks.    Some hens will leave their chicks at around 6 weeks, but 8 weeks seems to be the average for them to drive off the young ones and start laying again.
