    It's hot out today, a little over 80 degrees. Would it be okay to take the chicks out and let them walk around the yard for a bit? They are a little over a week old. I'll be with them of course.

    I think they would be okay, just watch them and if they huddle and act cold then you should bring them back to their brooder.

    We took our entire brooder outside today and opened the door up, and they had free range... but only a few actually went out.... it was kind of funny watching them unsure of what to do!
