I don't want to leave my chicks inside all day, but I can't let them free range because I already lost two. I feel so stupid that I didn't stop letting them out after I lost the first one. Anyways I have a decent size outdoor run that is completely covered in welded wire on the sides and chicken wire across the top. I want to leave them out there during the day, but I will have to block the door back to the inside coop because I have to let the big hens in and out for nesting and all that stuff. Part of the outdoor run does have a roof that would block them from rain. They are about 4 weeks old. If it is going to be a warm day around 70 do you think it would be ok to keep them out there all day. I have to work so I will be gone 9 hours. Otherwise i will leave them in all day and let them out when I get home for a couple hours before dark.
