I got my "red pullets" and "pullets" at TSC a week ago today, So I think they are closer to 1.5-2 weeks old. Are they ready for some sunny 67 degree outside time in the grass? If they can, how long should be the limit? I'd bring them in if they looked cold.

Do they have any feathers? Babies with thier chicken moms would be outside but can run back to get warm. If you let them, I would keep an eye, and put them back under the light after a few minutes to warm up.

I would. Mine would stay out in much cooler weather than that. Mama would squat and spread to offer to warm them, and they would ignore her and keep on playing. They'll let you know if they're cold. And they will love it.
