I start guineas at 90°F to 95°F and turkeys at 90°F. I reduce that temperature by 5°F once a week until I get the temperature down to the ambient temperature. At 3 weeks they should be down to 75°F. You can put them out there but you will still have to provide heat for them until they can handle the ambient temperature. Even when they get to the point that they can handle the daytime temperatures they will still need heat at night for an even longer period of time.
