My chicks are officially 1 month old and seem to be fully feathered (see pic). Their coop and run are ready. Can they be moved outdoors permanently?
The coop and run are pretty secure. Not too worried about predators at this point. More worried about the transition from indoors to outdoors and the cool weather.
I went with a prefab coop, secured with a solid base lined with hardware mesh. Nothing will dig under or break through to my chicks.
