Our chickens are just about 5 weeks old. I've been taking them out to the run during the day and putting them back in the brooder at night. I'm not sure if they're "fully feathered" yet, which seems to be the marker for when they're ready to spend the whole night in the coop. If anyone's willing to head to our chicken blog and check out the photos I posted from today and can let me know if these ladies look "fully feathered" I'd really appreciate it! Or maybe you know off-hand that 5 weeks is way too young.
It should be 56 degrees overnight tonight.
