I have 7 chicks that are 3 weeks old. They have been inside the house in a guinea pig cage since I brought them home. I am really wanting to move them into the garage as they are a) getting big and outgrowing the cage and b) creating lots of dust/mess/smell. (and yes, I am changing the litter)
Are they old enough to move to my unheated garage? I live in Michigan and we are currently experiencing a very cold spring. The forecast calls for 3-5" of snow on Sunday night! I have a deck box that I can put them in with wire mesh on top. I plan to move the heat lamp outside too. Can I do it now or should I wait a few more days? (It is supposed to be mid 40's next week with lows in the 30's) I just don't want the new kids to freeze out there!
Thanks in advance for any advice/help.
