    How early can baby chicks go outside. It is 80;s during the day and 60;s at night. I would like to have them out at 4 weeks old

    You can put them out during the day at 2-3 weeks, they should get extra heat at night for a bit longer, about 6-7 weeks before they should be okay at the night temperatures as long as you are slowly acclimating them to them.
