    It's not as hot is it was last year when I got chicks, and I'm wondering how hot it should be when I first take them out? They're probably about a week old right now.

    I would only take them out when it's sunny and 60+ degrees F. Not for very long either. If they stop wandering about and start clumping, they are cold, take them in immediately.
