80 degrees should be plenty warm for them, so you can go on and move them now. If it gets below 40-ish degrees at night you may want to put a heat lamp in the coopI’m in florida all though it is cooler out I tried to move them outside it was about 80 degrees and they are probably 5 weeks old
Yes.Will the older hens continue to peck at the younger chicks I don’t want them to get hurt
How old is the chick? I've often incorporated mine into the flock at night so when they wake up together there is less of a struggle. This may sound harsh but the chick will need to learn it's place and learn to run! I recently introduced 2 into my flock. They were pecked by my rooster and chased. They were very friendly but soon learned to stay out of his way and where they stand in the order. Now everything is fine and the only time they are bullied is if they try to eat from my roosters feeder and not one of the others.I have a few chicks that I feel are ready to go out to the big coop. I tried once already and the older hens started to peck at it so I quick grabbed it and brought it back inside. When can I safely move them outside?
