Okay to put Guinea Fowl out?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Day time temperature is upper 80's and middle to low 60's at night. They are almost fully feathered (except head and a tiny bit on the back) but they are flying out of their brooder box. I was planning on putting a heat lamp above their roost but do you all think its okay to kick them out to the coop? Thanks

How old are they?  Once they are fully feathered they should be OK without supplemental heat.

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

I have had them two weeks but I am guessing they were approx. two weeks old when I got them. They had almost completely feathered out wings and the closest picture timeline put them around twelve days old. They only lack feathers on their head and under their wings but feathers are starting to come out(along their back only).

Sounds like as long as they have a warm area they would be fine. Chicks that young will sometimes prefer to sleep on the floor rather than roost.
