Hi
I have 6 buggie chicks, 3 weeks old, I see from looking on other sites it’s safe to remove them from the hen at six weeks. Is this correct? My aim is to try train 2 of them and give the other 4 to good homes once they are a little older.
What’s the best tips for training buggies as I’ve had them for a year but this will be the first time I will attempt to train any of them?
Thanks in advance

That depends if they have weaned or not.
They can be moved when they are not eating from their parents, and are eating adult foods and drinking water on their own for at least a week.
It could be at 6 weeks, or 7 weeks, or 20 weeks, or 5 weeks. Each bird is different, you will have to monitor closely to see at what stage your little ones are :)
