    My chickies are nearly 2 wks old and I have been feeding them grit. I am going to have some warm days coming up. (Over 65 degrees).
    Can I take my chicks outside for 5 minutes? Are their digestive systems ready for grass and crickets yet? I own 2 White Australorps and 2 Welsummers.

    My chicks are about 2 weeks old now and have been spending the whole day outside for 3 days now and they LOVE it. We are in Oklahoma and it has been in the high 80's here. If it is only 65 there I don't know if they should be out too long but some outside time would be good for them....they love to act like big chickens.

    Have fun!
