    I think it depends on where you live.
    Im in Vermont, but with summer approaching Im hoping that I can get them into the coop well before 6 weeks as long as I keep a heat lamp going in there at night when its cool.

    The advice I have always read was 6-8 weeks.

    The ones I don't sell go out at 6 weeks I brood them in garage at 3 weeks I usually switch to a 100 watt flood light instead of 250 watt heat lamp but drop it down closer then at 5 weeks I usually shut light off during day and just put it on at night and at 6 weeks move out side to some rabbit pens and I live in central PA also
