Age to Let Baby Chicks Play Outside?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have 4 chicks (2 are 5 wks old and 2 are 3 wks old). I want to let them all play outside for a little while today, but I'm not sure if its warm enough. Right now it is 67 degrees F outside. Can I let them play today or should I wait? Or maybe should i only bring the older burds outside? Thanks.

They can go out. If/when they start to show they are cold, bring them back in. Chicks don't stay under mom 24/7, they go out and explore and return when they want to or when they need to warm up a bit again.
