    [​IMG] I would think the heat would be too much for 4 week old chicks, usually when they outgrow a brooder they go to a larger brooder - unless you have a well shaded area for them.
    Maybe you could let them outside early in the morning before it gets that hot.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] If it's that warm outside I'd let them out during the day and let them sleep inside for another week before letting them stay outside full time.
