    So my young girl are fully feathered and about the quarter of the size of my full grown 2 chickens (one rooster and one hen) when can I put them out with the two adults?? They have met a few imes thru the cage..

    You should wait till your chick is about the same size as the hen. She'll be better able to protect herself from both your rooster and hen.
    Good luck.
