My chicks are 2-4 weeks. Is it okay to let them out in a coop /run on sunny (75 F) afternoons for a few hours, and then put them back in the brooder? What about cloudy/overcast/showery days? If not, when can they go out (the older ones are wanting to fly all over the house if I take the cover off their brooder) i have let them out a bit, but I'm not sure it is okay or not. So far they seem delighted. Re the whole free range bit -- my yard is fenced (5-6 feet) though I can't say there isn't a place a small chick might scramble under. It is over an acre. There are hawks in the area. I want to let them out of their pen to free range a bit (under supervision) say at the end of the day, or on weekends, but I am scared if I let them out, I'll never find or catch them to put them back in a safe place when it's time, or I need to go in, and then they'll get eaten by a predator. How do people manage this?
