My girls are about 4-5 weeks old. They are nearly completely feathered, with the exception of one who just seems to be a late bloomer. Right now they are in the coop with access to a run, which they never go out into. But every time i go out there to see them, they run out the door like they cant wait to be outside. I'd like to let them free range a bit, but i worry they are too small and will get hurt, so i dont want them out unless im out there too. but then when im there my kids are there and the poor girls just get chased mercilessly around the yard. Would you let your girls out to wander without you around? say for an hour in the morning while you are showering an getting dressed? or are they too small still? Thats a recent picture of them. That brown one in the corner is the biggest of them.
