Serama Health: Transitioning Serama Chicks from Brooder to Chicken Coop

You can separate your serama chicks from their mother at any time, however they prefer to stay with her until they're properly grown up. If you do want to separate them, your best bet is to wait until the chicks have a decent covering of feathers at about 4 - 6 weeks of age - then they don't need any extra heat from their mother. If you really want to separate them from the mother, you may need to provide some heat until they are 5 or 6 weeks' old to keep them healthy and protecting them from mosquito bites as well. Perhaps you can use a heat lamp in your indoor chicken coop. However, GSN still follow this traditional method (#6weekswithmother) because it has been so successful.
