Moving chicks from brooder to coop

    I have four chicks that hatched at the same time and have been in the brooder together since leaving the incubator. They were a month old yesterday. Two are second generation of my LF one is a Polish bantam and the other is a Silkie bantam.

    They are all just about fully feathered.

    I'd like to move them into their own coop space .

    Is it too early?

    I'm in the UK so the weather is quite mild.

    As long as the coop temperature is similar to the brooder they should be fine, you want to avoid any sudden changes. If needed provide extra heat out in the coop.

    These guys are now 4 weeks old and just about fully feathered.
