Chicken tractors

Hi, i have just recently built a Chicken tractor 7ft x 14ft. Front half is wire and the back half is tin. I am using it for meat birds. Wondering if the chicks will be alright in the rain. There is plenty of space in the tin area, but i was concerned with the chicken tractor sitting on the grass? Any information is appreciated. P.S. i am not putting them out until their feathers are all grown....3-4 weeks.

    hi
    sounds like youve been busy , well done
     as long as they can shelter from the rain thery should be ok but personally id give them 5-6 weeks indoors and slowly acclimatise them seeing as winter is on its way
