    When should I put my baby chicks into a chicken coop?

    That's a big question. More information is needed about what you are exactly asking.

    You can move them when you are done brooding them if your coop has no electricity, or whenever you want if you have electricity.

    You can get a lot of answers on this---but the safest way is to wean the chicks off the heat---about 5 degree's per week until the brooder heat is the same as the room heat. Then move them, But you can move them when they are only days old by giving them a safe place heated and them wean them off the heat while they are in the coop. Now if you have other chickens in this coop-----do some research because that can turn into a night mare.
