Is 11 weeks old enough for the chicks to be out in a coop? (and out of my kitchen!) I'm in central Indiana and right now we're in the 40s and 50s, but next week will drop back down to the normal 30-35 degrees. They'll be in a coop inside the barn. Draft free with a brooder lamp, but still won't be warm for a while. We've been setting the brooders on the deck on the warmer days to let them adjust to that...and also hear the "big kids" scratching around in their run. Won't be able to do that after today because we're supposed to get rain. (because it's not muddy enough after 12 inches of snow melted in 2 days) Also, they won't be cooped with the big kids yet. Gonna wait till the two roos are gone (about 6 or 7 weeks) and then we'll add the hens with the others.
