    My 2 Bourbon Reds have been out in their yard for a couple of weeks. They are 6 weeks old. they really enjoy being outside. They are in a protected yard. They even went out today, in between the rain showers we were having.
    They do go at night. I don't let anyone stay out all night long. Too many bad critters roaming.

    I started letting my bronze out at about 4 weeks old. started out with short visits until about 7-8 weeks then started leaving their coup door open during the day but still close them up at night.
