    I just moved my chickens who are now about 2 mths old out to the coop last night-I have keets that are about a mth old. The coop is divided into two sections- would it be ok to move the keets out to the coop in there on section with the heating lamp or should I keep them indoors? Are they old enough to fend themselves with any bugs that they may come in contact with? There not going outdoors just in the coop. What do you think?

    Mine were in the coop at that age. Not out in the covered run, just in the coop with access to a heat source.

    Mine were out in the coop with my chickens at 5 weeks. They've been in the run too since they were 6 weeks old.
