I just bought my chickens last sat. Forgetting to double check their age I called TSC today asking for an age estimation. They had feathers on there wings when I bought them so they said they were 2-3 wks. I'm not sure if this was calculating in the week I've already had them so I'm going with 2-4 wks. Ok, so after rambling (I'm good at that lol) I'm wondering when & what my next steps will be as they age. I have them inside right now in a big bedded box w/ their heat lamp on 24 hrs a day still. How long should I keep them inside or when should I start moving them out? I was going to just make a bigger box pen in a perfect section in the back of my garage as their next upgrade, which has a door to the back of the garage that would be perfect eventually w/ a small opening to an outside pen. Does this sound good? I had planned on the light going out there as well. When should I start weening? It may be a while still, I'm not sure, but I'm not looking forward to having an "empty nest" once I make the move lol. I really enjoy walking inside and taking turns holding them all. They are growing quite fond of us, as we them. Sorry for the length. I'm new (to byc & chicks) and I'm full questions. : ) I've read a lot of threads and have learned a lot of good info, but still feel unsure with so much knowledge there is to know heh.
