My chickies are about 6 weeks old now and I think they are ready to go outside full time and into the coop. Is that about the right timing? Also, is there anything else I should do besides just put them out there? Finally, last night for the first time I tried to put all the lights out in garage where their brooder is. Before they had had a red heat lamp on even if it was really far away form the coop and not really heating things up much. THey seemed to like the red light. Well the red bulb broke yesterday so I just turned out the lights at the end of the day. They went into a total panic in the dark. Shrieking their heads off until I came back in and put on a light. Is there any way to get them used to the dark because it'll sure be dark outside when they go outside? Anything else I need to know about moving them full-time outside? Thanks! I'd never get through this without you guys.
