    They are about 2 months old, maybe older, for the last month i have been taking them outside to a pen to play all day til sun down, then they come back in the house. they are dying to get outside today, can i put them outside for awhile?

    they are used to the cold weather as its been fairly cold the last few weeks.

    here they are yesterday outside having fun...

    Go for it! If they show signs of distress, bring 'em in. I would stay with them the whole time, though...

    Try it. They may like it. Just keep a check on them.

    Gail Damerow said that it's fine as long as you watch them for unhappiness.
