I've also read that if chickens were allowed to free-range right after hatching, they would almost never survive. Their bodies have to maintain certain temperatures for several weeks after hatching. Not only that, but if left out during the night or too young, they run the chance of becoming prey to other animals. Here's a YouTube video that Smart Chicken just recently posted--it might answer of the other questions on this forum.
