    Hello again! My girls are 3weeks old -- is that too soon to let them into a protected pen on a nice sunny day for a little playtime?

    If it is protected from all sides (including above) it's fine if it's really warm and they have a little shade to get into. Also no wind at this age. They still need temps at 80 degrees and they don't handle drafts well this young.
