    I have 2 embdens, 2 rouens, and 2 pekins, all about 2 weeks old. It's gonna be about 64 and sunny today. Could I take them out to the garden and let them pick around supervised for a while? They've never been outside. I was gonna make a small pen and just let them play.

    So adorable!! as for them being outside, since they aren't fully feathered they may chill quickly so that would be my only concern. at 64 we can feel chilled especially if the wind is blowing, just think about them without a long sleeved shirt or jacket on.
