    Hi, I have three chicks ages 1-3 weeks. It's been very warn here and I've been taking them out to the pen with my 2 silkies during the day then and then putting them in the brooder til morming. They seem happy and everyone is getting along. Is there any reason I shouldn't be allowing them ask alone time (in secure own) during the day? And

    I do the same with mine, if the temperature is warm enough it's a great way for chicks to spend the day.
