    I put mine outside when I got them 3 weeks ago they were ~1 week. I just processed 7 on Friday. They do still have a lamp for heat and they do stay near it at night but their pen is completely open air now. I had a makeshift hoover brooder ( cardboard box ) for the first 2 weeks that they would stay in at night but now they just have 2 sides for a draft shield.
