I have 5 5 week old chicks and 7 4 week old chicks that I have put out in my coop. They were just too big for the brooder. They have been out there since Monday of this week and seem to be doing fine. We have had a cold snap, but they still seem to be fine. I want to let them out into the run some. It is in the upper 60's right now with a high of 75 expected. They are in the shade under my deck and porch. Is it too cold for them to be out for awhile and are they big enough to go up and down the chicken ramp by themselves yet. One more question, my run is 5 feet tall with no roof, but is completely covered by my deck. Is that tall enough so they won't fly out? Thanks.
