    I have a 5 week old chick... how cold or how hot can it be outside for me to take it out?

    In general chicks should be kept at around 90 degrees the first week they are hatched. You can drop the temperature by 5 degrees each week. You want them totally feathered before you let them out in temperatures below 70 degrees.
