    I was going to put lyme down in my yard today before the rain tomorrow. Is there a certain amount of time i should wait before the chickens can be let out of there run? I only have 5 chickens in a 144Sqft run, so they have plenty of space for a couple of days, but i'd like them to get out and free feed sooner then later.

    Any suggestions?

    Well I started letting my chickens out after about 4 weeks. We started letting them out three at a time. Then after all the groups of three go out then we send half the group. Then after that you would send them out all at once. But be sure to keep to have a eye on them.
