So, I have 10 new baby chicks!! I have 5 Road Island Reds, and 5 Buff Orpingtons. The Buffs are a few weeks younger than the Reds. I ordered them together, but unfortunately, they weren't ready together. Anyway, they are older now. I have had the Reds for 5 weeks, and the Buffs for about three weeks. The first two were taken three weeks ago... These two were taken yesterday.... I am usually against getting babies this late in the year, but after some ugly incidents, we are down to three white layers, a rooster, and two "unknown". So....my questions... ~When will the Reds be ready to go out? ~Will I need a heat lamp? If so, at what temp outside, and for how long? ~Do I need to worry about the other chickens messing with them? (Although when I added the rescues back in the summer, all was fine. It's been a minute or two since I have had new babies to put outside, and last time it was in the spring. Thanks for any responses!!
