Ive been out of chickins for about 2 years and got to missing them so i went and got 4 grown hens . how long should i keep them locked up before i let them out to free range? i allways raised mine form babys and never had problems with them going back to the coop. These girls are pretty wild so im worried they want return to there coop.

Thanks in advance

Give them a week and then let them out late - an hour or two before sunset. If you find that you are having to do some chicken wrangling to get them back in the coop, back in lockdown they go for another week.
