    I have some VERY young Texas A&M White that are practically fully feathered out. It has been in the 40s-80s here where I live the past 2 weeks and I was wondering if they would be ok going outside?

    Yes, they will be fine at those temps. When I start putting mine out I like to start with a few hours at the warmest part of the day then add extra time every day to get them used to the temps. Within a week (of starting this) I usually have them out from dawn to dusk and put them in the coop for the night.

    Ok, but I won't be home to do this next 2 days. Will he/she be ok to stay outside?
