Ok folks in Centre County. I want these cluckers to go outside soon! They are 4 weeks old. How much longer should I wait? As you all know it is still unpleasantly cold. I can easily put their heat lamp out there and it won't be drafty. I don't want to do anything to jeopardize them but they are starting to out grow the brooder. Any suggestions?
Didn't read the growing out of the brooder part til now! We built a 5 ft by 3 ft box to put the chicks in after they outgrew their original box - particle board on the bottom, and just 4 cheap wood posts on each corner, and lined the whole thing with thick plastic. We got the thick plastic as leftover from our job - but you might be able to purchase it at a hardware store?
