Hello,
everyone has such great advice here! looking forward to learning much more.
So for my first question,here in utah the nights get pretty cold, my chicks are 5 & 6 weeks old. At what age can i get them out to the coop? I have 13 little ones i let them out during the warmer days to play and back inside during the night.Our night temps are around 35-40 degrees is that still to cold ?

Out to pasture
Yes. that is cold for chicks how bout waiting another 2 weeks for them to all be fully feathered out. If you lows are still that low, you may want to put a brooder lamp in the coop for them at night.
