    What's your weather like?

    Usually they'll be ok at 6 weeks old as long as you can provide a wind break for them.
    However, if it's still really cold up there, it might be a bit of a shock to them.

    Make sure they fully feathered. 2-3 weeks. If it is still cold provide a wind break and a heat lamp.
