    I have read a lot about when to put chickens out. My question is we have 5week old Rhode island red chickens which i know do well with cold weather. Can i put them outside earlier if they are feathered? Temps are 32 at night 50s during the day. I live in Massachusetts.

    If they are feathered you can put them out. Will they have heat lamp at night?
