Can 8 week olds be put outside for a short period when it is in the lower 60's? I would like to open the door and clean the coop. They would be in the run with the first wind to hit them. They have been a 65 degree coop for a couple weeks now. John
My little ones are 6 weeks and are as happy as can be outside in 50 degrees for a few hours with tarp wind break. I watch them closely, though, and if they huddle in the shelter box for very long I bring them in.
