I have 6 week old chicks and would like to move them outside when they are about 8 weeks. They are mostly fully feathered now but it's almost January. I'm having the barn re-wired so it can handle a 250 watt heat lamp. Is it safe to move them outside into a mostly draft free barn with a supplemental heat source? What are y'alls thoughts on that?
