    i have 7 chicks and 1 gosling who are 1 week old. its about 85 degrees out so i put them out in their pen. is it ok to leave them out for the whole day outside?
    The other day it was 70 out side so i took them out for about 10 minutes and they were having fun, was this ok?

    They should be fine, just keep an eye on them, if they start huddling together in a pile or shivering, they are too cold. Also beware of neighborhood cats while letting your youngins out for some air.
