I have two five week old silkie chicks, and I’m thinking of transitioning them outside in the next week or so (they will be 6-7 weeks). The weather is looking at being low to mid 80s and lowest high 50s. Is it too soon? Any advice on the transition?

I currently have some 3 week old silkies and they are outside without heat at the moment. Our Temps are high 90's to high 60's here. Maybe put them outside for an hour or so in the evening when it could off and see if they start huddling. That will tell you if they are too cold or not😊

Thank you so much!
