Hi..I know I have read it somewhere before, but when is it safe to put peachciks on the ground? Question I am ready to move my older peachicks from the "brooding" cage with a wire bottom to a pen. I have already wormed the ones 6 weeks old. I have salted the pen and it is ready for the newbies. So what age is safe? THANKS Smile Cool

Hi Farmer Green
Being a little more conservative, I put my babies on the ground at 4 months. By 3 months, they have a pretty good immune system.
