i have 5 chickens that appear to be fully feathered (this is my first go around). They will be 8 weeks tomorrow. They have been outside everyday in the coop and we bring them in at night. They are never happy to come in and seem to be ****** in their brooder (which is in the house-not garage or shed temp wise). We live in California where it is in the 40s at night. Are they ready to stay outside?

I would have had them outside 24/7 a few weeks ago - they are plenty old enough now. Move them out, you will all be happier for it.

I'm in Alabama, little different climate, but we are having lows in the 50's at night and highs in the 80's during the day. We put ours out about 2 weeks ago at around 8 weeks old. They love being outside! We waited until they were all fully feathered.
