    We got these as freebies from someone who had only had them for 4 days and said they were 3 weeks old. They are no bigger than our chicks who we KNOW are 3 weeks old. When can we leave them out at night? [​IMG]

    They look closer to a week or two old, and before I could offer an informed opinion on leaving them out, could you say what the temperatures are and what kind of shelter they would be in?

    These are my Khaki Campbell's at 4 weeks and we keep them outside in a little house at night with a heat lamp and they're fine. It's 40-50s at night here and they don't seem to huddle under the lamp. If it's fairly warm at night they should be fine you might want to get a heat lamp though. They probably are about 3-4 weeks old they look the same size as mine and I know mine are 4 weeks [​IMG]
