    They might need a heat lamp at night.

    How old are they?
    Mine are being brooded in the coop with two heat lamps. Its big area. They are 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 weeks old. And doing great. under one lamp is 85 and another lamp 70, and then they rest of the coop isnt heated. They spend time all over the coop and warm up by the lights as needed.

    I would only put them out with heat then. For at least another couple weeks.

    They will need heat till they are fully feathered......For sure they can go outside, just make sure they are out of wind and the elements.....

    Best of luck....Cheers!
