    My pullets are almost 7 weeks old, fully feathered, and quite a bit too big for their brooder... They are ready to go into their coop, but it just snowed here last night.. Do you think they will be okay? They're warming light was turned off last week and they did fine.

    Quote:The most important issue is that their feathers are full, which you said they are. I would put them outdoors but keep an eye on the weather forecast. Not sure they should be outside in truly freezing temps yet.

    Anybody else have experience with late season chicks?
