    How old do the chicks have to be before I can bring them outside for fresh air? It is 11.1 degrees C .....but the sun is shining brightly and the breeze is warm.

    When mine were a couple of weeks old I would take them outside as long as it was 70-75 F

    11 C is about 51 F [​IMG]-- I think it would depend on how old your chicks are [​IMG]---I wouldn't take them out if they are still really young..51 is chilly [​IMG]!

    Here's a site that converts anything to anything else. It's called Online Converstion, and here is the link to the temperature page:

    If the chicks are not fully feathered out, make sure they're not going to be subjected to drafty cool breezes. And only do it for a short period so they won't develop a chill. They will love being outdoors!

    I think that 11C might be a little chilly!
