    [​IMG] They should be ok to go outside once they have all their feathers, around 4-6 weeks.

    I am also going to add... depends on where you live and what your temperatures are.... If they are mostly feathered and it is warm you can get away with a little earlier. I put some of mine out at 2 weeks!! Kept a heat lamp on at night, but the daytime temps were in the 90's, so I felt comfortable with that....

    I agree that most put out around 4-6 weeks and that is the norm.... we were just really warm here.

    my brooder was in my coop, and they were in it the entire time, even when it dropped to 17*...they did great, keep the heat lamp on, and when they are feathered out...let them go enjoy the day, depending on weather of course!
