    Are my baby chic's ready to be outside with no heat lamp? They are almost 7 weeks old now. Just don't want anything to happen to my babies.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! If they are fully feathered and you have been weening them off the heat lamp they should be fine to go out. As soon as mine are feathered I start weaning them off heat and if the weather is good they can be without heat at 5 weeks.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
