How old do they need to be to move outside? The oldest one is 10 days old and I was wondering how old they need to be to move with the older others?

It really depends on the species.
I put my coturnix out at around 4 weeks. Generally, and not if it's like 12deg. I would never do that,

Lets say 4 weeks for coturnix. All other species experts should sound off.

mine went out about 4.5 weeks, it was cold though, like a 15 degree week, they went into the metal shed with a light on them. They did fine, no losses. But I was very concerned about them and checked them constantly.

IF YOUR GOING TO MIX BATCHES OF DIFFERENT AGES I WOULDNT DO IT UNTIL NEARLY FULL GROWN. AND THEN EVERYBODY GOES INTO A STRANGE NEW PEN ALL AT ONCE.
