We got our coop finished tonight and I was wondering if I could put my chicks in it during the day. They are mostly feathered and it is supposed to be in the mid 60's tomorrow, I would bring them in at night because it is suppose to be in the 20's but I thought maybe during the day they could enjoy the outside. They are between 4 and 6 weeks old.

Thank you in advance for you help.

I don't see why not if the weather is nice. They would probably enjoy it. If it's possible can you attach a light in the coop for them to get under if they get chilled? My 6 week olds live in the coop and have free access to the outside during the day. But, because I don't necessarily trust the elements I still have a light on inside in case they want it. I don't think they are using it though so it seems to be for my own piece of mind than anything else.
