    Living in Southern Alberta has a few down falls (snow/cold/wind) but we also get what's called a chinook every so often which really warms us up. So I am wondering what temperature would be ok to take the chicks out in for a little field trip? They are only 2 weeks right now, but maybe at 3 or 4 weeks I will get lucky with a few warm days!

    Thanks!

    When ever the weather is warm enough that you can be out for a bit in short sleeves. Or, if you can give them an area that is totally protected from breeze, they can go out when the temp is down to around 60. They'll let you know when they are cold.

    Ok thanks! We likely won't get to 60 anytime soon :-( even with the chinook.
