Hi all. I have my chicks living in the basement in a dog cage. Today they are 5.5 weeks old. The nightly temperature is in the upper 40's so I have not put them in the coop yet. This weekend the lows are supposed to be in the fifties with the highs in the sixties and seventies. I know that chicks are supposed to start at ninety degrees under a heat lamp and each week you reduce the temp by 5 degrees. So at six weeks this weekend they would be ready for lows of only 65 degrees? Or are they feathered out enough this weekend to go outside? When younger I had chicks and put them in the run when it felt warm enough and never had any die. Now the internet is here and I found this forum and am suddenly paranoid. Anyway, is it ok to leave them out? Thanks much.
