    Just got these today, 6 Production Reds, found em in the 75% off tub, brought home put in Tweener coop, "has ceramic wall heater," From an Office Supply store years ago. set it to 75 , put in water bottle, & feeder, Open door in case they want to see outside.& have Take Pic... Now if I just Knew how Old ? Look Older then 2 Week stated, have Feathered Wings, Tails, Just Fuzzy bodies.....

    I'm thinking . . . with each others Body Heat & the wall Heater. Should be Ok, Temp stay constant. Now do they NEED an Window to see tha world ?

    They look right at about two weeks old to me. Three to four weeks you've got more body feathers and by 6 fully feathered.

    Look about 2 weeks if your temperature has been up and DOWN in Washington like ours has been. Two weeks is too young to be put outside. They should be fully feathered out which means no fuzzy bodies, but, feathers instead.

    B-4 we left this Am it was a NIPPIE 36 here in Lewis Co. Burr I went & listened @ Tweener coop, Heard Baby Noises. we Got back 7 or so hrs later, I checked chicks. Opened coops Screened Door. [​IMG] all 6 had been sleeping, or whatever same as when I left, [​IMG]since it was DARK in side. LoL as soon as I open door to run, they perked up Last I checked they were Pecking @ food and living the chick life.

    You have red sexlinks. And they all appear to be female.
