    Hi All,

    Trying to figure out if my chicks that hatched on 5/17/10 can go out side around 6/12/10. Weather here in MA should be 80 durning the day and mid 60's at night. Does any one know if they should be fully feathered by then? Thanks!!

    [​IMG] Somewhere around 6 weeks of age, most breeds would be considered fully feathered. Even at 6 weeks of age, standard practice says they are most comfortable when the night temps are in the 70's. [​IMG]
