    So my 8 barred rocks are now 4 weeks old they have their feathers. Can i put them out side tonight? It is going to get down to around the mid 50's so can i put them out or keep them inside. They are out during the day but i had been brining them in at night and turning off the light in the brooder at night.

    I would put them out but would provide a heat lamp a nigh for a few more weeks.

    I agree. At that age they need to have access to a heat source. In two more weeks they should be able to handle mid to low 50's with no problem.
