    Yesterday I moved my 5 week old babies outside. With our winter being super crazy here in SC I wasn't sure. But I looked at the 10 day forecast and it seems like they'll be alright.

    I've decided to keep my incubator well out of reach during the winter & only hatch when it's warm outside.

    At what age do you guys put yours out?

    i wait a good solid month before putting pullets out if you have other chickens like me perhaps i wait a month and half so the pullets are bigger and can defend themselves better.

    Oh, I should have mentioned that I fenced off a corner of my "Big Girl" pen for them. They're visiblebut not touchable.

    PERFECT they can see and understand each other without contact after a week you can let them interact possibly
