I have 6 two week old chicks. We have almost finished the henhouse and run.....it looks like this I would really like to put them out there next week at 3 weeks old. The nights have been in the 50s and I will be putting their heat lamp in the henhouse on a timer for the nights. The underneath of the house is open but I will put poplar shavings down and I'll put some shavings in a tub they can cuddle in if they want to. I've read everything on BYC I could find about this and overall feel like they will be fine but of course I will still worry since so many people say to keep them inside until 6 weeks old. Please critique my plan and make suggestions! And I want to say thanks to all the people in this forum for their humor and sincere help!
