I want to let my 4 wk old chicks out in the grass for a bit but I am afraid I won't be able to catch them to bring them back inside. They are in a big box in the garage right now but it is so nice out and the grass looks so inviting that I want to let them out. Should I just wait until they are older? I have 22 chicks and they are all doing really well. I am afraid to jinx things. I am thinking of transitioning them to their coop this weekend. I had planned to let them free range but now that I have them I am afraid I won't be able to get them back if I let them free. Maybe it is just too soon. Is there anyone on here who lets their chickens free range without the benefit of an enclosed run? While they are really young I would stay out with them. Maybe I should make some kind of temporary intermediate run until they are ready to fully free range. (My husband will NOT be happy about that idea!) What to do??
