How long before I can start letting my chickens free range?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I recently bought some adult chickens.  I want to let them out of their coop to free range but was wondering how long before I can start letting them out and know that they will return every night.

 

Thanks.

I'll wait at least a week so they learn where to sleep at night.

What you wanna do is let them out an hour or so before nighttime. That way they wont have time to go very far. After one night its ok
