    At what age can I take my babies outside? They're five days old right now. I just want to take em out for a quick supervised visit; it's sunny right now. Are they too young? I wouldn't be leaving them out there/alone.

    I'll let mine out when they're a week. Although the hen would have had them out sooner. Just make sure you're using medicated feed that help prevent Cocci. It's not necessary but it's a precaution.
