    How cold can a fully feathered out cornish x rock get? It's been in the high 20's to low 50's here recently, is that to cold for them?

    Do you know how old they are?

    They are a little over a week now, I know that's too young to go out yet but I was just wondering when that time comes in a few more weeks if it will be warm enough.

    Maybe once they are around 4 to 5 weeks but I would put a heat lamp near just to make sure.

    I would also have a heat lamp on them. It is better to be safe than sorry. They can move away from the heat if needed but if they get cold, problems can set in and you would hate to loose good meat. :thumbsup
