    Only if it didn't get any cooler than about 75 at night and warmed up to about 90 or warmer during the day.

    Not without secure shelter and supplemental heat. They don't look like they are feathered enough to be able to keep themselves warm yet.

    They aren't old enough yet. You've still got a good couple weeks at least. At the stage of feathering they are in as of now they can't cope with regular temps unless it's around 75 or 80 where you're located.

    Unless they are in a closed coop with artificial lighting, you've got a bit to go.
