I have read that you want to keep your chicks confined to the coop for a week or two prior to letting them free or pasture range so they recognize it as their home. My chicks have been in the coop for a little over a week, when can I let them out (time confined to coop and age)...should I not let them out til the spring? They aren't full size yet... does that make them more susceptible to being bird prey? I also have goats in my pasture... do I need to introduce them to each other first? Also when should I clip their wings...and whats the best way to go about it?
