    So, Im thinking ahead and wondering when we could take the chicks outside to get some sun and play in the grass? Thinking about making them a small pen for out there. Its been around 75-80 here lately and it would probably just be short periods of time. I know the kids would love it lol

    I tried a search and mainly found when to move them outside to the coop...
