    When they are completely feathered out, about 6 weeks old. That is what I have found is a good age to go out full time. Depends on your weather as well.

    16 in the living room? [​IMG] Our brooder is out in the garage. As mentioned, at least 6 weeks old and you can add a brooder lamp at a corner of the coop for a few weeks or until that night temps moderate.

    After you have chickens for awhile you will learn to love the smell. [​IMG]
