You can rehome them at any time provided the person you're selling/giving them to has the means to take care of them. They should be off of heat by 3-4 weeks old (for indoor temperatures). I usually start looking to rehome my button chicks at about 6 weeks.

I use a heat lamp, so I raise it a bit every week until I take it away. This lowers the temp in the brooder a bit at a time.
I had them on heat lamp first week😁changed to the heat plate light in house was so red lol😁there all feather change every day cant believe how fast they grow and change .only thing I read with heat plate said ones not going under anymore remove so keep a wee eye
