My chicks really like to scratch. They keep kicking out all of the food out of their feeder and digging small pits in their bedding.

I was thinking of taking them outside for a few min of time in the grass. They would be contained in a cardboard fence. They did well with crushed mealworms and small pieces of snow peas.

Is 16 days too early to try this?

I put mine out real young as long as it is 85 degrees or more- but of course in a protected environment. A cat or dog crate with the lid open and placed upside-down so they can be in the grass is an easy and safe way to do it. Make sure they have plenty of water and shade, especially as you get over 90 degrees because although they like it hot- 90 and direct sun can sunburn them.
