    They are old enough if it's warm enough. I took mine out at 3 weeks old and they did fine. Take a look at them now on my Just sharing my pics ... post. See they are growing up nicely even though I put them out of the house at 3 wks. [​IMG]

    Thank you so much! I've been worrying myself sick over doing the right thing lol! They were a birthday present for our 9 year old.. but I've sort of taken over! I think I spend more time out there with them than her! Must be the mother in me! *heading over to see your pictures* [​IMG]

    well they were sort of afraid of the grass! [​IMG] lol So we keep taking them out to get used to it and they keep jumping on our feet or whatever body part is closest! lol
