    Would it be ok to let my chicks out into the run? They will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. The temp where I am at is suppose to be in the mid to upper 70's. This is my first bunch of chics so this is all new to me. If it is to early when woudl be the right time. Thanks for any and all info..

    I would wait until they are fully feathered, unless your with them in case they get cold and huddle up

    I put mine outside for a limited amount of time at 2 weeks. The temps were similiar. I would stay out there with them just in case it got too cool. They had a blast!

    I was going to stay out with them. I still have some work to do on the coop itself. I still have to put the shingles on the roof so they wouldnt be outside by themselves. Thanks
