At what age, you can let off chicken from the coop?
Still, some of the chicken raisers are having the habit of releasing their chicken out of the coop in the early morning to graze in their garden and made them to come back before night on its own to the coop. If you're not aware of this procedure, most of the Indian farmers are practicing this method of chicken rearing.
But you should know at what age do chickens have to be before you can let them roam freely and they’ll return to the coop at night.
Generally you can practice this method from the age of 3-4 weeks. Beware!!! You should not practice this method, if you are having wild animals in your area. Don't think that wildlife will not take hens during daylight! So an eye on them during day time also!
