    When it is warm enough.

    Yep.....unfortunately, not a scientific answer.

    If you are reducing the heat about 5 degrees every day, you can put them outside when you have reached the normal outside temperature.

    A good draft free area is very important for chicks, and in case the temps might get a bit low, I often put out a heat lamp for them to warm up under.
