    How old does my baby chicks have to be to be able to go out and play a little bit?
    They are 2 weeks now, and the outside temps are mostly in the high 80's mid 90's here in CA these days.

    I had mine out starting at 2 weeks when it was a warm, sunny day. They were in a small portable run area that had a top with hardware cloth. They loved it and did very well.
