By 6 weeks they're feathered out enough to be outside as long as temperatures are moderate. Is that your coop in the photo? If yes, I would definitely have bedding throughout the area to make for easier clean up. Is the wood thing they're hanging out in supposed to be nest boxes? You don't want them to get in the habit of sleeping in nest boxes.

What material is your flooring? Shavings on the flooring will keep things alot cleaner and easier to clean.

That wood structure they are hanging out in, I hope it's nailed/screwed together & not just balanced.

The siding? They'll start pecking and hopefully it's not something they can peck through.

Hove fun with your chicks :hugs
