Chicks are 5 weeks old tomorrow. I have been taking them out to the large coop during the day and back into the brooder at night as some nights it gets real chilly. I am keeping an eye out on the low temp each night, and its between 50 and 55 most the time. It looks like most will be feathered in and feathers on their head by next weekend, so I am planning on putting them out then. I have only a few things to finish to make sure all is secure at night and the run is secure to. My question is, my Columbian Wyandotte is still mostly fuzz! Cute little yellow and grey boy. He is much smaller than the rest of the flock to. His white and black wing feathers are about 2 inches long now, tiny tail feathers are beginning to poke through and a see a few tiny black feathers on his neck. Other than that he is still a fuzz ball. And I have two Silkies bantams. One is half the size of the other. She has finally learned to fly, but her head doesnt have the topknot yet, just her baby fuzz. Can these two go out with the others, or should I still bring them in at night? With them going in the coop during the day, and by Wednesday will get to go outside to. When I finally leave them out, should I do the lock them in for a couple of nights without access to the run during the day at all? For a short time? Just dont know how I am suppose to do this.
