    I'm wondering what's the best time of year to hatch chicks and have them outside at 6 weeks old?

    IMO the best time of year is end of March into April. They can acklamate (sp) to the upcoming summer and just all around strong chicks. That's just me though. Ps that's in south louisiana where the summers and humidity can get pretty bad
