  1. At what age will they be big enough...feathered out enough to go outside? (in the coop we are in the process of building for them...) They are 3 weeks today.

    it was warmer when i put mine out at about 4 weeks. at this rate i would prob wait 6-8 weeks depending on living conditions in the coop.

    I would say the same, depending on if you put a heat lamp out with them 6-8 weeks.
