Hi all! I'm so happy to have found this forum. I'm about as novice a chicken owner as can be. We have four Rhode Island Reds that are 9 weeks old and appear to be thriving, they've already become little pet babies to me. We've kept them inside since birth because of the harsh Missouri temperatures. My first question is at this age and given that, to my novice eyes, appear to be all feathered out, when is the best time to finally let them outside in their coop? The Temps could still get into the low thirties, high twenties at night, but they've quickly outgrown the large rabbit hutch we built for them to grow inside and I want them to be comfortable, but also safe. When would you say is the safest time to allow them to be outside on a regular basis? I'm sure I have a million more questions but this is the most pressing. Thanks and nice to meet everyone!
