    Welcome to BYC!
    At four weeks old chicks can tolerate 75 to 80 degrees, perhaps a little cooler.

    Welcome to BYC!!! I'm from Jersey too. As long as theyb have some place shady to go, i think they are okay in this weather. They weren't panting or anything, right? I have chicks that are 2.5 wks and they loved being outside today, I just had a shady spot for them and made sure the water stayed clean and fresh.
