Hi welcome-byc.gif Carin

Glad you could join the flock! If your birds are fully feathered and weaned off heat they should be fine. As soon as mine are off heat and feathered they go outside.
The learning centre has some great articles that I'm sure you will find most helpful. Here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Your most welcome big_smile.png
Plenty of weird weather here in the UK too gig.gif

They are tougher than you think, I opened the door to let my 3 week olds out because it was nice and in the afternoon we had thunder, hail storms and rain. They had the sense to head back in and were no worse for it.

I'm sure yours are enjoying being out.

Welcome to BYC! If they are fully feathered they will be fine outside, just make sure they have enough food.
Best of luck to you.
