I have just brought home my new adolescent chickens, and put them in their new coop. How long should I acclimate them before letting them out to free range?

Give them a week to get used to their new home.

I agree with Sumi. Give them a week to adjust and then start with supervised free ranging. If adolescent they are prime targets for hawk predation.
