when to put chicks outside?
We have 25 chicks, 28 days oldÂdifferent breedsÂin a large wading pool with high sides and a net over in the garage with a heat light on at night. Temps here are in the 80Âs day and 60Âs night. IÂd really like to put them in the outside pen and chicken house. We would keep them separated, in the house and in the pen, from the big chickens. We could rig up a heat light at night though that might make the house too warm for the big chickens. Is there some key thing about their development (weight, feathers?) that would signal that itÂs ok to have them outside?
