After the baking, you should join the baked products together in a single vessel, such as in a bag, and may then separate Challah with a blessing. [To note that this separation after baking is even initially done by Matzah baking as we do not make a dough the size of Shiur Challah, and hence need Tziruf to separate after the baking.]

See  Michaber Y.D. 325:1; Admur 457:6-13; M”B 457:7; Nitei Gavriel Vol. 2 34:1-9; Piskeiy Teshuvos 457:5-6

There is no obligation for one to use the fruits of the same tree to separate Terumos Umaasros. Hence, one may collect lemons from one tree and then collect another lemon from another tree for the sake of using it for the Teruma Umaaser separation. However, this only works when they’re the same species, and only if the fruits of both trees require Teruma Umaaser to be removed from them, and they are both within the same year of Shemita.

See Michaber Y.D. 331:53-58

Since one’s property is considered to have acquired the eggs and bird it is not possible for one to fulfill the mitzvah of Shiluach Hakein which applies only to birds that one does not own.

May one do Shiluach Hakein to birds that made a nest in the wall of my house?
