You can put them out anytime, they may still need supplemental heat, if the temps drop too low, 90-95 (minus 5-7 degrees for each week) so temp should be between around 70, so if it gets below that at night, give them some extra warmth. Once they are fully feathered (around 8 weeks) you can take away the heat.
