    My new coop is coming today. However, it has been quite rainy on and off and I'm wondering if I should wait to put them out? Or just keep them inside the coop on rainy days? I am very anxious to get them outdoors!

    How old are the chicks? My advice would be on if they are almost fully feathered and the temperature outside are key factors. i would wait to put them outside until they are mostly feathered and on a sunny day so they can get use to their new home. You just don't want them to get wet then chilled if the temperature drops.
