Robins nested in my shed some months back, chicks are now fledged and flapping around the shed, and my head.

The tennisball sized hole in one of the windows on my shed door is the way the adult robins came/come in and out.

Q: Should I leave the shed door open to allow the juvenile birds to leave?

I know they would have no restrictions in the wild, but I'd like to give them as much of a fighting chance as possible. One managed to flap out while i was in the shed today. Both parents landed beside it chirping away at it, but it just flew off. Parents still bringing worms to the other two that remain inside. I havent seen the one that left, I wonder would it return to the shed to roost in the evening?
