They are 6 weeks old and mums will be with them, but I have a rooster and little scared he might savage them!
Thanks so much!

Best to wait until they are about 18 weeks and off Grower Feed. Mums can go back when the chicks are fully feathered but better for the chicks health/immunity to wait until they are mature.
