    Fully feathered
    Turkey is huge
    They are itching to get out
    No heat lamp past couple weeks

    Nights are in the 30s-40s. House is about 60s at night. Days are 80s.

    Coop is way bigger than the brooders.

    I have no idea on age and can use straw in coop but not comfortable with a heat source out there.

    Thanks all!

    I'd put them out during the day but even for fully feathered I personally wouldn't be comfortable putting them in 30-40 degree weather quite yet.

    Would my garage work? It is warm during the day but not sure how much it chills down at night

    Its a storage for us and not attached to our house but has room. I am ready to get them out of my dining room.

    How old are they?
    If coop is dry and wind proof, they should be fine.
