    to go outside in the middle of winter? The quarantine period is up, and I have 2 Delaware pullets that I would like to introduce to the rest of the flock. I'm a bit concerned about them being kicked outside in the middle of December, since they've been in a brooder in our garage since I acquired them 4 weeks. They're good sized birds and have a good amount of feathers, so I'm inclined to move them on out. You guys think otherwise?

    They're old enough to be outside in winter.
