    I have 12 week old pullets and I was wanting to know if I could put them outside right now I live in Georgia.

    Oh yeah, they should be well feathered by now. Have a draft free place for them to sleep, no problems. I kick mine out at about 6 weeks old, even if weather pops down in the 40's at night. They cuddle up and sleep in their coop.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure Since it is starting to get cold again. Can you also tell me something about molting. How long do they go thru it. I heard if you give them dry cat food and vitamins that will help them. Have you heard anything about that.
