When do they leave the brooder?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have 10 ringnecks and they are fully feathered and flight ready.  Want to move them into the tractor I use for meat birds.  When can I get them outside?  They are about 4 weeks old now.

Thanks!

If they are fully feathered and your temos dont go below the 50's I say go for it .. most birds once fully feathered can go outside...

If they were mine I would put em out... I have put out three week olds before qwith those temps.. just make sure they have a dry place to go to out of the wind and they should do great ..

They are doing very well.  It is always amazing how all birds seem to thrive once they head outside.
