    I have some chicks that are a few weeks old. They all have a lot of feathers but since this is my first go I'm not sure what fully feathered is. They are currently in my house and I think are getting a little stuffy in their box and stinky even with the box being cleaned everyday. The coop I've gotten ready in the yard is completely sealed and ready for them. I also have the capability to put a heater out there with them. I live in South Georgia and its already regularly 65 to 80 in the daytime and in the 50s at night. I'm curious if it would be alright to take them out there in about a week with the heater to give them more room and in their permanent home. Here's a pic of one of the chicks so you can look at how many feathers they have. [​IMG][/IMG] . Thanks for all the help!
