    I am praying that this little boogers can go outside this weekend. It is still kinda cold, they are 3 weeks and I am just ready to get them out. They make a lot of noise and stinky. I can't wait for the day they go out. But really can not wait for the day to make some lemon peppered chicken or some home grown chicken n' dumplin's [​IMG]

    At 3 weeks they should be almost feathered out. As long as the low temp for the day is above freezing, you shouldn't have any problem. If it is colder and windy, I usually will tarp off the open sides of the tractor for the first few nights to help ease the transition.
