    I was wondering if my RIR babies are ready to go outside. They are a little over 1 month now. I live in Va so the weather is starting to warm up.What do you think?

    One month is the magic age. Time for them to make the big move! Go for it!

    They sure look ready! I'd suggest reading up on the acclimatisation of process of moving from brooder to coop. Just type "brooder to coop" in the search box - theres lots of threads to help you out.
