Welcome to BYC!  Where are you located and what is the general hi/lo temp range right now?  How feathered out are the chicks (photos can help) - the amount of feathering at a given age can vary, so it isn't so much about age as it is their ability to maintain their own body temperature.  Is the coop wired for electric so that you could continue supplemental heat or will moving them out require that they be completely independent of the heat?  Are they the only birds you will have in this coop?

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
