When to leave the brooder?

Recommended Posts

Mine moved outside at 6 weeks and were absolutely fine. I’d say yours will be too as they’re pretty well feathered and will snuggle together at night. Having said that it was August when mine moved out rather than late September. Just keep an eye on night time temperatures and bring them in if it gets really cold. Have they been out during the day already?

If in doubt bring them in; better safe than sorry. They don't look very big or well feathered and they can be getting cold during the day. Excessive cold runs them down and they can get ill. Without seeing the coop and its location I can't be sure leaving them out is OK at the moment. We bring our more fragile adults in at night if we feel it necessary. The handling will be beneficial long term as well.
