Hi, I'm new to chickens and got five chicks in the mail from MyPetChicken on Tuesday (they're 5 days old). They're doing great and seem really vigorous and have good appetites. I had them vaccinated for Marek's disease and they are eating medicated feed (Amprolium added). On nice warm days, when would it be ok to take them out on the lawn/dirt (untreated grass) for little supervised outings for say 30min? I put some dry leaves and sticks in their brooder today and they love to scratch and play around.
