    At what age can a chick live on 25 degree weather?

    A chick cant. An older chick that is fully feathered still cant, not without heat.n If you mean in a coop with no heat, I'd say about 12 weeks old, to pick a number. It really depends on how well they are feathered and none under 8-9 weeks old should be in that temp, IMO, certainly not without some heat to get under and a draft free space.

    How long can you live in 25 degree weather? I bet by asking the question you have come up with the answer without any help....a chick that young at this time of year really needs heat, food and water....in a safe, draft free environment.....hopefully with some other chick friends to hang out with...even in the warm spring, the nights can get cool and damp.
    Good Luck, enjoy the BYC

    Again, please put a REAL subject line. The '??????????????????' doesnt help you get any answers.
