At night the temperature drops to 35 degrees and we have a high of usually 55 degrees.. Do you think it is safe to put out my 1month old ducks and chickens in the pen yet? Also at what month do I start feeding my ducks and chickens regular pellets ? Thanks !

Chickens don't mature till 16 weeks old, that is when you should start feeding ten adult feed but you can start giving them grit and treats now. I wouldn't put your chicks outside now unless you have a heat lamp outside for them. You should wait until they are older and able to maintain their own body temps until you put them out in those conditions unless you have a lamp.
