Hi everyone. Looking forward to learning all about raising my new chicks in my back yard. My chicks are three weeks old and I'm hoping to get them outside soon. We have a coop with a ramp that leads to a roosting area. And two nest boxes. WE bought it at tractor supply co. Also have a fenced in area or run as they call it that is about 20feet by 16 feet . Not covered. How long should I wait to bring them outside for good? I bring then out daily for a few hours now add long as the weather permits.
