    I am not quite sure what you are asking but week old chicks should be in a brooder with regulated heat or in something safe and heated in a coop. I'm not sure what you mean by 'what is the latest you would let the chicks out of the coop'.

    Also, what do you mean letting the chicks by themselves for 1-2 days? Are you leaving and no one to care for them? Chicks eat and drink alot, they always need a fresh supply of food and water. Leaving them unattended for a few days in probably not a good idea.

    I would wait to they are at least 2 weeks old. But it depends on how cold or warm your climate is. If you are talking about leaving them by there selves for a few days, I wouldn't do that. If you do you will need to fine some one to check on them 2-3 times a day at least.
