Do you think that these chickens are ready to go free range?
If they are fully feathered than they are ready, so yes.
If fully feathered, they're good to go. Unless your temps outside are the same as a brooder would be at their age. I've always raised my chicks outside with no supplement heating in the summertime because it goes no lower than 85.
What do you mean by free range?
Do you have older/other birds?
Do you have a predator proof yard?
The outside Temp has changed. 40 at night and 75 at day. I have them in my garage with a heat lamp almost done with coop.
Free range meaning coop at night yard in day. The Coop is predator proof. We have coyotes, racoons, Hawks, etc...
I didn't even see the free range part I don't let mine free range until they're 3 months or older and I have several places they can hide. Free range at our house is in an 8 foot fenced in area. I also have older chickens that show them the ropes.
They look plenty old enough to be outside.
Do you have a cockerel ? that can alert them or is someone there to watch them ?
I have no older chickens to teach them the ropes but I do have plenty of yard. Only problem is it's not fenced.
