    Is it ok to move my ~month old chicks outside permantly? Is in the mid-to upper-70s durring the day and 50s at night, with the sun shining durring the dayand little wind.
    They will have a heat lamp in the coop. Will they stay under it themselves, or would I need to lock them up next to it at night?
    There are 4 of them, and they all look almost completly feathered.
    One has a bald spot on her head/neck where another picked her, but it is well on its way to being healed. Will that make a difference in her weather tollerance?

    As long as you have a heat lamp with them for a few more weeks and the coop is draft free, yep, they can go out!
