    Hi everyone!
    I live in upstate NY it’s about 40 during the day and anywhere from 20-30 at night. I have 8 chicks 3 weeks old in a brooder in the house. (Not crazy about them in house they create dust!) When do you think I can move them out to there coop which is outside?!?! I would put the heating lamp outside. I’ll post pictures of them and the coop!!
    The chicks would go on the bottom where the doors are under the roost.

    The chicks can go outside once they are completely feathered, at about 4-6 weeks.
