I'd say it would depend on how big the poults are. The older they are, the better their chances. I think they can fly up to roost around 3 weeks old which is important for survival. By then I'd say they are catching their own bugs and such, but could sure use momma to tell them when danger is near. Not sure if another hen would "adopt" them or not, but if so that would give them a better chance.
