Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
If you're just feeding commercial feed, it isn't necessary. If they're outside regularly, it isn't necessary.
If they were day old chicks on the 23rd, they are a little young to take out the brooder. 4-5 weeks is usually when I put birds out. NC isn't cold by chicken standards, so ignore the weather once they're of age.
