    Just make sure the chicks can't squeeze through the fence. At a month old, they may be feathered in enough to stay out full time.

    If your temps are still cold, I would keep them in till they are FULLY feathered out. Then you could put in coop with pop door open, so they could go in and out to the run by themselves as they want. At dusk they should be locked into the coop, and put on roost bars before lights out.
